Review of Where Is God by Dr. John Townsend

January 25, 2010, by Rob, category blog

It’s a question that comes up often:

  • When your doctor gives you a report that’s not favorable.
  • When a loved one suddenly dies.
  • When your spouse decided he no longer wants to be married.
  • When disasters that destroy many lives occur.

And that question is “Where is God?”

Where is God is also the title of the latest great book by Dr. John Townsend. Dr. Townsend is a Christian psychologist and Leadership Coach. In this book he takes us through our life’s experiences where God seems to be absent and shows us where God really is. He provides a Scriptural basis for answering this commonly asked question and guides us to a Biblical understanding.

With several recent events in my life causing me to ask the question, “Where is God?”, this book has come to me at just the right time. After reading the first few chapters I already felt I understood the answer a bit better. The book is easily read but gave me much to consider. It’s message has already given me insight and hope. And, as a pastor, I think this book will be one pulled off the shelf frequently when I have people asking the question, “Where Is God?”

If you’re facing trying times right now, wondering where’s God when you need Him, you need this book. There’s no quick fixes offered but good honest guidance in determining your situation and seeing God in the midst of your struggle.

And if you’re a pastor, you should have this book to your library. I think you’ll find yourself referring to it time and time again.
