God Is Just Not Fair by Jennifer Rothschild
If you have ever asked: does God care?, does God hear my prayers?, Is God even there?, than this may be a book you should pick up and read.
Rothschild has been blind since a teen and has had a chance many times to ask these questions and to seek answers. She is a minister’s child and knows her Bible. So she isn’t looking at it from the doubter’s viewpoint. She knows whom she believes.
But when she sees around her God healing and blessing some others she wonders why them and not her?
She postulates there are six big questions of faith. In this short book she looks at and discusses each dividing the book into six parts and 30 chapters.
I found this book written in a style that is easy to digest. These are questions that are asked by all thinking people. They have been asked for a long time and you would think God gets tired of hearing them. But He doesn’t.
We are not the first. Job asked. He got an answer. God is sovereign. We cannot know exactly why, but we can know ultimately it is according to God’s plan.
Rothschild reminds us of this fact.
