Where the Hell is God?

By Richard Leonard, S.J.
Foreword by James Martin, S.J.

Review: An earthquake in Haiti, a tsunami in Japan, a child stricken with leukemia: What kind of God would allow such things? Jesuit priest Richard Leonard's own experience of family tragedy forced him to ask that question. He never discovered the "right" answer, but he knows a bad one when he sees it, and he explores seven of them.

Beginning with the assertion of his first chapter, "God is not out to get us," Leonard walks us through difficult terrain, both theological and personal, as he explores the interaction of divine will and human suffering, and lets neither God nor humanity off the hook for the pain of our world.—Bryan Cones, Managing Editor, U.S. CATHOLIC

Waking UpPaulist Press says: Where the Hell is God? explores how believers can make sense of their Christian faith when confronted with tragedy and suffering.

"One of the best books you will ever read on the spiritual life."—James Martin, S.J.
