Cover designs I was playing with. The second one is the cover laid out flat, includes the back.

Neither one of the cover ideas will include the JW seal in the end.

In this book, I took a hard realistic, raw, unsoftened look at who God is when “bad things” hit us. I wanted the truth. I wanted the details. If there was assurance to be found, I wanted it. If there was peace to be grasped, I wanted it. If there were lies that needed to be unmasked, I was willing to look. I wanted the hard evidence, practical truths, tangible beliefs, and a solid conclusion.

If you want to understand who God is and where He is in tragedy and affliction then I recommend you read and study the this book. It has the potential to change your life.
