Pain is the world's common language. Suffering is woven into the fabric of our fallen world. No one is immune; no one can escape its grip. It's a condition that impacts people, relationships, even entire countries.
Palmer Chinchen writes God Can't Sleep after his years of living in Africa and serving in places like Haiti and Cuba, witnessing firsthand the devastating effects of civil war, oppressive regimes, pandemics, and extreme poverty. And in such moments, it can seem like God is asleep while the world spins out of control. Palmer believes that while pain may not always make sense, it's vital that we develop a Christian response to suffering. Drawing from powerful Scripture and his unique world experiences, Palmer fearlessly tackles the tough questions: Why do the very worst things happen to the very best people? When will the pain stop? Through Palmer's insights that encourage, comfort, and offer hope, you'll be inspired to respond to a hurting world as you connect with the compassionate heart of a God who can't sleep.
