Publisher's Summary

A beloved husband dies of cancer. A child is kidnapped. A family is shattered by a fatal car accident. We pray for peace and protection in a world that seems to be falling apart. Often we experience or hear about spectacular answers to prayer. But where is God when the cry of our hearts seems to be answered with silence? When God Doesn't Answer Your Prayer explores the mysteries and paradoxes of unanswered prayer. Forged in the fires of his personal quest following his own crushing experience of unanswered prayer, Jerry Sittser offers hard-won spiritual insights that affirm the greatness of God's love and concern for us, even when we do not fully understand why our prayers seem to go unanswered.


What the Critics Say

"Any Christian who has ever questioned the validity of prayer will find this to be a luminous book, full of vulnerable and venerable wisdom." (Publishers Weekly)

Best Book On Prayer I've Ever Read

Although the topic is unanswered prayer, in the process of dealing with this issue Jerry Sittser ends up writing one of the best books on prayer in general I've ever read (and I've read quite a few!). Highly recommended!

I felt like I was sitting with a friend and discussing a very worthwile and important issue. The author draws not only from his spiritual journey, but brings in thoughts and insights from a large host of others that have experienced similar situations, and then backs it up with a solid biblical foundation. It can also be used a guided study as there are discussion questions at the end of each chapter.
