Item description for The North Face of God: Hope for the Times When God Seems Indifferent by Ken Gire...
Overview Presents stories of Christians who have endured long-term suffering, tragedies, and doubt, addressing difficult questions and offering hope in the midst of difficult and tragic situations when one feels abandoned by God. Original.
Publishers Description "The North Face of God" addresses those times of adversity when God seems to have abandoned us. Sometimes, when the cold winds of life blow and we cry out to God, he's silent, and we wonder if he still cares about us--or ever cared. Drawing on the Psalms, Ken Gire climbs the mountainous terrain of God's seeming indifference and helps us learn how to hold on to hope, despite our circumstances. He also calls us to become good "climbing partners" for other people who need help and encouragement along the way.

loved it May 29, 2006
I read this book and quickly read every book out by Ken Gire. I love his writing style, his honesty, and his down to earth encouragement. When I was going through a very difficult time in my life I felt like someone understood...Ken Gire. They were very helpful to me. He always points to God, but in a very real way. Can't say enough about this book.
Re-entering the world of Ken Gire. Jan 4, 2006
I became addicted to the devotional books of Ken Gire back in the 1990's. In this book, as in his others, he has an vivid writing style that make the scriptures come to life in a relevent way. I recommend this book to anyone in search of highlighting their daily reading of the bible. It is not a substitute for the scriptures, but this book uses the scriptures to help understand our daily walk.
I love his use of a U2 song in the first chapter. This book will help the average christian get a better understanding of what God is doing to us in difficult and dry time. Buy for you and someone you love.
