What Good is God?

I would highly recommend Philip Yancey’s What Good is God? 

Yancey writes, “When I heard the story behind the Orange Revolution, the image of a small screen of truth in the corner of the big screen became for me an ideal picture of the church.  You see, we in the church do not control the big screen.  (When we do, we usually mess it up)…We live out our days in a twisted society that barrages us with the message that worth depends on appearance or income or access to power.  Jesus calls us to see the world through God’s eyes, to realize that God may care as much about what is happening in Darfur or Haiti right now as on Wall Street…” (185-186).
