Publisher's Summary

If God is loving, why is there suffering? What's the difference between permitting something and ordaining it? When bad things happen, who's behind them, God or the Devil? When suffering touches our lives it often doesn't make sense, especially when we believe in a loving and just God. In this poignant audiobook, Joni Eareckson Tada, a quadriplegic for over 30 years, describes her personal experience with suffering and provides her special understanding of God's intentions for us in our pain. The author reveals a God big enough to understand our suffering, wise enough to allow it, and powerful enough to use it for a greater good than we can ever imagine.


What the Critics Say

"By 2 who have cut through the fog to see God clearly even when it hurts, we are led to know his love, tears, and ultimately, his joy." (Dr. Joseph Stowell)

All Should Read!

If you could sum up When God Weeps in three words, what would they be?

Very helpful. I recommend all Christians read or listen to this book. I have not read any other book other than the Bible that is more helpful to prepare ones self for life's ups and downs. It is a shortened "abridged" version compared to the book version of the same.

What if Jesus doesn't heal you???

Gnarly book about what happens when Jesus wants you to not get better.

Ask and you shall receive???


Asks a lot of tough questions about why God inflicts suffering on the world and church instead of healing us like when he walked the earth.

I guess we'll figure it out at the second coming.

I've listened to this book now at work about 5 times.

Excellent work.

Thought provoking.
