It's easy to trust God when things are going the way we want them to and when the world still makes sense. But when suffering strikes, we are filled with doubts and amazed by all kinds of events that are beyond our control. In the midst of suffering, we often question the very foundation of our faith in God. Since our trust and obedience is based on the character of God, the issues that life's tragedies force us to face are difficult, if not frightening.

Joni Eareckson Tada, a woman who has lived in a wheelchair for over fifty years, and Steven Estes, a pastor and one of Joni's closest friends, explore answers to questions about suffering. When God Cries is not so much a book about suffering as it is about God. Through an overview of what the Bible says about suffering, the authors make it clear who God is, why He allows so much grief and pain, and how we can trust Him.

When God Cries is for people who need more than answers. With practicality and sincere warmth, he teaches us to depend on the love and mercy of God despite our doubts, fears, desires and questions.

Criant de vérité

Ce livre est parmi mes préférés à vie. Joni, en s'appuyant sur la Parole et en nous donnant des exemples riches de sens, répond, autant que possible, à l'une des questions les plus difficiles de l'Évangile : Pourquoi Dieu permet la souffrance? Cela m'a donné des encouragements pour ma vie ainsi que des réponses à donner aux gens qui ont besoin de compassion et d'amour et surtout, d'un Sauveur!

On trouve dans cet ouvrage des pistes de réflexion sur la maladie, la souffrance, la prière, la guérison et... l’enfer. De nombreux passages sont émouvants, alors que d’autres nous forcent à remettre en question notre interprétation des événements de la vie et à cultiver le contentement. De beaux exemples de foi sont cités et peuvent nous servir de modèles. Ce livre constitue, à mes yeux, un encouragement incontournable!

Un livre bouleversant, écrit de façon authentique, qui ne laissera pas le lecteur indifférent. Les auteurs ne cachent pas leurs souffrances respectives de tous les jours, mais ils montrent que rien n’échappe au Seigneur et que c’est justement à travers les épreuves que l’on expérimente cet amour infiniment grand que Dieu porte à ses enfants. Ils font également un excellent parallèle entre les réalités de la vie et les promesses de la Parole de Dieu. Un ouvrage à lire et à relire !
