Publishers Description How can we believe in God when there is so much evil and suffering in the world?

Creighton professor and author Richard J. Hauser, S.J., offers this book to all those who have found their faith challenged by difficult experiences.
By applying in-depth investigation to deep spiritual questions, Hauser reminds us that when faith is challenged, God remains with us and is our source of strength.

Reviews - What do customers think about Finding God in Troubled Times?
Different Take Jun 12, 2007
Hauser's book is down to earth, and goes well past the normal platitudes. If you're wrestling with "How could God allow this to happen?" it's well worth your while to pick up a copy.
Challenging and Satisfying Apr 19, 2006
A friend recommended this book when I lost my job, and I was extremely grateful that she did. Hauser provides a mental construct for understanding how most of us relate to God, and then explains that how we relate to God affects what we seek from God during times of suffering. He truly shows the reader how to find God in troubled times, using examples from Scripture as well as from his own experience.
However, this book will not only enable the reader to draw close to God during troubled times, but also enable the reader to enter into a more intimate relationship at any time!
Will Increase Understanding of The Spirituality in Suffering Jun 19, 2003
This book having, in my opinion, both a strong academic and also personal emphasis, isn't a "quick read" - not if you're going to get the most possible out of ALL THAT IT HAS TO OFFER. There are questions at the end of each chapter that invite the reader to PAUSE AND CONSIDER how their own personal thoughts, feelings and daily living apply to chapter highlights. Scripture quotes, analysis and also insights from several spiritual writers are also included. This is definitely a book that has the potential to provide the reader with an INCREASED DEPTH OF UNDERSTANDING of the spirituality in suffering - truly a MUST READ !
