Item description for You Only Think God Is Silent: Hearing God in the Defining Moments of Our Lives by Julie Ann Allen...
Overview Julie Allen's husband was buried alive on a work site, and she experienced a mountain of emotions. First chaos, then a fog of grief, confusion, anger, pain, questions, and then a profound realization - God certainly was not silent!
Publishers Description Admit it. We have all been left to wonder during uncertain times where God was and why He wasn't revealing Himself. Author, Julie Ann Allen's time came on the night of her 38th Birthday as she held her baby and helped her second grader with homework. Her husband was not home from work and he was never late. Julie Ann glanced at the clock. A passing sense of dread and then the whisper of a message to her spirit, ?You are a widow.? No, God, was that You? Silence . . . utter, deafening silence. Her husband had been buried alive at a work site only a few miles away, but his death was covered up, prolonging the eventual confirmation. Julie Ann learned what it was like to stand at a crossroad generated by tragedy and make a choice. That choice became a defining moment. She could either ignore God and/or blame Him for the tragedy, or hear God and rely on Him to sustain her, transform her, and reconstruct her life as she passed through this profound tragedy. Julie Ann chose happiness and God's provisions?and you can, too. If you have ever asked any of these questions: Where was God? Why did God allow this? Why can't I hear God? Then You Only Think God is Silent is a wonderful place to begin to turn to God and hear the answer?loud and clear.

Time reading this book will be well-spent Feb 25, 2008
I was so thrilled to find this book on this site, because after I read it, I wanted to give it to at least three people I know who are struggling. Though the obvious audience for Julie's book is those who are grieving, I think her healing words can speak to anyone who has experienced a crisis. Her best take-home message? The response to the question many ask...."Was this (tragedy/situation) God's will?" Julie answers this question definitively in a theologically sound way. She delivers great insight for pre-Christians, new Christians and those who have walked with the Lord for many years. Your investment of time and money will be well-spent on this short but powerful book.
excellent book Jan 4, 2007
This book is well written and insightful... everyone, Christian or not, should read this book! All of us will have burdens in this life- the Bible tells us this- so Julie Ann teaches us how to "be prepared". I especially like the chapter entitled, "Faith is like a car". We have to keep the car in top form so it will perform when we need it to. Our faith needs to be maintained in that way, too, not just when the crisis comes. As difficult as losing her husband must have been, Julie Ann has allowed God to work through her and be a shining light that exemplifies His glory. Well done!
