We are told we live in a religious world. God will take care of us. But millions and millions with prayers on their lips have died in wars or disappeared in ethnic cleansings. Children die before they are ten and their parents go to church. We have an enormous church structure, it is extremely wealthy, it is led by powerful men, and yet our world is overwhelmed by suffering, evil, and greed. What we all want to know is “Will God be a very present help in the time of trouble.” This book says, it doesn’t seem like it. In a blunt, funny, plain-spoken way, this book leads us in a different direction. We are given a provocative, unorthodox look at what we are all up against and a way out. In Zimbawe people are greeted “How did you sleep?” The answer is, “I slept well if you slept well.”< Less
