Where Was God When That Happened?
“Christopher Ashs Where was God when that happened? is a book for all of us who are overwhelmed by global and personal tragedy. Ash understands the heart wrenching reality of the question and he understands how the Bible provides an answer that does not gloss over the pain but addresses it at the deepest possible level. He writes for ordinary people crying out for answers but especially for Christians who dont know what to say when asked. I was helped to rejoice again in 'the utterly good sovereignty of God'. I intend to give a copy to the many people I know who are struggling with these questions in the face of real suffering, pain and terror in the world.”See All

“If there is a God, how could he let (fill in the blank) happen? Whether we trust him or not, all people wonder how God runs the world. Once again, Christopher Ash writes with understanding while teaching us that there is a God, he is in control, intensely involved in every detail, and he is good.”See All

“Christopher Ash tackles with great clarity and sensitivity the toughest questions about suffering. Against views which try to derive comfort by denying God's existence or sovereignty, he shows that the only true comfort is in a thoroughly scriptural vision of who God is. This is a book which warms the heart and feeds the mind.”See All

This is a warm, pastorally hearted guide to the Bible's teaching on God's sovereignty.
When a disaster happens; when personal tragedy strikes; when we are perplexed by world events, Christians can begin to doubt that God is either truly good, or truly in control.
Christopher Ash faces these questions head on, without flinching at any of the difficulties. First he looks at six different ways people have answered this question — both as Christians and from other religions and none. He then reveals the Bible's answer: the revelation of God's character and purposes throughout history.
