Reviews - What do customers think about When Prayers Are Not Answered: Finding Peace When God Seems Silent?
What's the point? Aug 10, 2002
The pages of this biik hardly contain anything new, in fact, it is all quite trite and not really worth the money. I would like to suggest "God Calling" instead of this.
Just fluff Nov 21, 2001
I am inclined to agree with the above reviewer and I wonder what the purpose of this book really is. It is self-serving, repetitive and not what I expected. Doesn't go very deep at all. You would be better buying something from Guideposts etc. Money, for most folks is too tight to waste on stuff like this.
What is this author trying to say? Nov 11, 2001
The text of this book is rather prosaic. I kept hoping I would come to that "aha" moment where the book would coalesce into one cohesive piece. Instead, it was just a rambling stream-of-conciousness type of work that came across as pretty sterile. In fact in one part it was downright insensitive as the author explains sitting in a Catholic mass where a woman faints and the mass goes on without missing a beat. Is that what faith is about? To be so self-righteously pious that the distress of our neighbors fails to move us?
This kind of robotic christianity devoid of human touches and concerns is not what is needed today. A vibrant, growing faith which recognizes human needs in all their many divergent aspects is the clarion call, especially for times such as these.
The author's earlier work, "A Wide Place For My Steps" was pretty much the same way. You don't feel as if you're getting anything substantive and you soon find yourself asking "..where's the beef?" Vital Christianity must and should address the person at the point of their need forsaking "nicey-nice" platitudes and stained glass rhetoric.
Somewhere, someplace, someone's heart is breaking: a marriage is close to divorce, a young life is ravaged by drug abuse, a lonely man sits in a hotel room living what Thoreau called "a life of quiet despair" wondering what's the use of it all. Books of this sort can make a difference in a life. Unfortunately this one misses the mark by far.
