Publishers Description
"Emergency operator. May I help you?" "Yes, my name is Alex Gee, my wife is nineteen weeks pregnant and I think her water just broke This is her second pregnancy, and . . . we lost our first baby just like this . . ." "Sir? Hello? Sir? Try to stay calm. Who is your wife's OB/GYN?" "It's Dr. Koller Uh . . . My wife is losing more fluid . . . Hurry " Oh God, this isn't happening again. I can't handle another loss like this. Let this be a dream Please let this be a dream Have you ever felt like God has let you down just when you needed him most? For Alex Gee it was the loss of his second child at birth. For others it is death, divorce, financial ruin, physical disability or a host of other trials we face in the world. In these moments of crisis our view of God is challenged and our faith is shaken. With refreshing candor in this book Alex Gee offers true companionship--though not easy answers--as you search for the way to hope.

Reviews - What do customers think about When God Lets You Down: Trusting Again After Pain And Loss?

Real Hope in Deep Sorrow  Oct 24, 2006
Alex Gee has delivered a gem with this book on sorrow and loss. It's basically his story of the loss of two daughters - and the near loss of a third - at birth. I've never read such emotional prose, yet there is never a hint of wallowing here. This is simply fine prose from one of America's finest preachers, and the gospel message rings through and through. Tim Tyson (author of Blood Done Sign My Name) said in an interview:

There is a temptation among Christians to decide, in advance of actually examining the evidence on the ground, that history was redemptive and faith-driven and somehow theologically focused. ... I am a pretty good nonsense detector, having grown up among people whom I admire for their audacious and unjustified hope.

Alex Gee would be one of those people. When God Lets You Down is about audacious and unjustified hope. It is a manly approach to the grit of life.

The last chapter belongs in any anthology of Christian writing. Any editors out there reading this? It's a letter to his two girls who died, and Gee shows his most courageous side, when he actually apologizes to them. This is the deep stuff of the soul, and life-giving like few other texts I've ever read.
