When There Is No Miracle By Robert L. Wise

This book gives help to shed light on the age old questions so many have asked. Why didn’t God answer my prayers? Why didn’t God heal my loved one? Why does God allow suffering and pain when He can take it away? These are deep heartfelt searches for answers, but sometimes the answers we want do not come.
With our limited abilities as flesh and blood all we can see is our sorrow and distress, and need for relief. God is all knowing and all powerful and sees a much bigger picture, an eternal one.
The author helps guide us to open our minds and hearts to God’s purpose and working past our expectations of delivering the miracle we so desperately need and want. He addresses this through scripture and real life accounts. In doing so I felt he balanced human emotions with God’s truth. What he shares helps prevent us from looking at God as genie in a bottle waiting to grant our wishes. He approaches this issue directly but with the compassion of someone who had been there relates to where we are. While some might see book as depressing I found it hopeful. It beautifully reminded me that no matter what I face or how God chooses to answer, faith and trust in Him is all I need. I found this book encouraging and enlightening.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Kregel Publications. My comments are an independent and honest review.
