Item description for When God Says No: The Mystery of Suffering and the Dynamics of Prayer by Daniel Lanahan...
In many situations and throughout the ages, when people have petitioned God for the relief of their suffering, or the suffering of others, God has said no. This text attempts to provide simple and practical pastoral insights for the ordinary person who comes to listen to the Word of God in Church. Using the death of his own brother aged 25 from cancer, Father Lanahan offers thoughts on why God allows suffering, the meaning of prayer, the mystery of the universe, the death and resurrection of Jesus, the death of a loved one, and the promise of salvation.

About Sharing One's God-ness with Others ... Oct 26, 2001
When God Says No is a book that expresses a most profound truth with a simplicity that is most appealing. When I received a copy, I read it from cover to cover in a little over an hour. But, that said, it's the kind of book that one keeps near and reaches for again and again - when a moment of crisis arises, or when a word of comfort is needed.
The author shares himself with the reader. His rich experience of both God and humanity is caught up in the book he writes. He shares both his goodness and his God-ness with the reader, even as he invites the reader to an in-depth personal relationship with the God Who allows the reality of pain to be experienced by us all, as we journey on - into life forever.
