My Name is Hope...

Aside from the catchy titles, I have to admit: I'm drawn to books like these - written from a "faith perspective" in both cases - yet seriously grappling with all the messy irregularities of human experience  -  afflictions that weigh us down and leave us befuddled, exhausted, embittered. All your favorites here: pain, fear, death, separation, loss, grief, cruelty, neglect, abandonment, betrayal, alienation, anxiety, depression... Where is God in all of this? We can't stop ourselves from asking that question....Or at least, I can't.
