Item description for How Can It Be All Right When Everything Is All Wrong? by Lewis B. Smedes...
Overview Where is God when life seems to fall apart? How can we believe that good results from every experience -- even when our worlds seem to fall apart? Speaking to all those who struggle with suffering and doubt and seek to believe in spite of it, bestselling author Lewis Smedes challenges readers to find God in the midst of life's most difficult times.
Publishers Description ""Faith does not break lose in my head with a whooping, 'Hurrah for God ' Believing sneaks into my soul while my head is saying, 'My God, where were you when I needed you?'"" Lewis Smedes does not explain away pain or deny that things get bad and that life is hard. Instead he helps us move beyond a disheartening present by being open to God and the certainty that things are, somehow, fundamentally right. This book is about grace. Grace is the courage to go on believing in the presence of suffering and death. This is real believing, not just the intellectual kind. "The thinking part is not all that hard. IT is the feeling part that comes hard, the part that lets you know in the deep places of your soul that it is all right even when your head tells you everything is ghastly."

Lew has the ability to pack whole paragraphs into single sentences ... it's thoughful thinking and careful writing. Listen to the cadences of his voice on one of his tapes and your reading his material will come even more alive.
A great inspiration for all of us! Jan 16, 2000
I am often left with a lack for the proper words when someone shares one of life's problems with me. This book has given me the words and the confidence to use them when one of these opportunities comes my way now.
It has helped the lives of those I come into contact with as well as my own life.
