Torn by Jud Wilhite

Too often we get cliched phrases when talking about suffering and "where is God?" questions. Jud Wilhite has written a book that deals with this question in an easy-to-comprehend fashion.

Instead of asking the "Whys", Whilhite says a better question to ask in the midst of hurt is Who? Who is worthy of our trust in these troubles?

I typically roll my eyes when I hear Christians talking about doubts and how people "just have to have faith" that God is in control. You've probably heard that overused phrase, "Let go and let God"? It's those kind of lines that make my skin crawl.

Wilhite goes beyond pat answers and gives us a pastoral look into the question while providing practical ways to desire joys, defeat anger and survive through the broken aspects of our lives.

By using biblical examples as well as real-life situations, you'll gain a fresh perspective and a positive outlook the next time your life feels like a broken record.

I was pleasantly surprised with Torn. It wasn't like any other Christian-help book that I've read.

It's actually useful.
