Where Is God? by Dr. John Townsend

If we are honest with ourselves we have all asked the question “Where is God?” We may have faced the loss of a loved one, losing a job, or disappointment in how life in general has turned out. It’s at those moments that we ask “Where is God? Has he forgotten about me?” Even Christ when suffering and dying on the cross called out “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46)

I was interested in reading Where is God? Finding His Presence, Purpose, and Power in Difficult Times from a professional standpoint.  I am not necessary going through a difficult time right now but thought the insights and truths expressed in the book would be helpful to know for myself and in order to express them to others. I was surprised at how relevant the insights and truths were for just everyday living.

Dr. Townsend addresses a lot about the attributes of God and what He desires for and from  His children. Dr. Townsend does not spend much (if any) time talking about hypotheticals, positive thinking exercises or false hope but he gives your spiritual and psychological facts and truths about dealing with hard situation, how to survive them and how to go on with life. He also uses real life examples from his life and the lives of close friends to show how God does work in hard times.

The narrative is broken down into three main sections:

  • Why does a loving God allow us to experience difficulties?
  • How is God active int he middle of our hard times?
  • How can I find God?

Dr. Townsend does not downplay hard times, suffering, or doubts but addresses them realistically and with grace and empathy. But he also does not fill you with false hope – he does not make any promises that your suffering will end or that there will be a happy ending. Where is God? is a great read for everybody. I believe it will help you deepen your understanding of who God is and how to relate to others who are going through a difficult time and how to cope with your own situation.

    This sounds like a really good book. Would it be suitable for a Sunday School study?

    I don’t think it would be a good Sunday School study. In my opinion, it would be hard to be effective unless the class was willing and open to really being honest and transparent otherwise it will only be something you’ve learned in your head and not taken to heart. That’s just my opinion – I’ll bring you the book and let you decide for yourself.
