Summary

If God is loving, why is there suffering? What's the difference between permitting something and ordaining it? When bad things happen, who's behind them, God or the Devil? When suffering touches our lives it often doesn't make sense, especially when we believe in a loving and just God. In this poignant audiobook, Joni Eareckson Tada, a quadriplegic for over 30 years, describes her personal experience with suffering and provides her special understanding of God's intentions for us in our pain. The author reveals a God big enough to understand our suffering, wise enough to allow it, and powerful enough to use it for a greater good than we can ever imagine.

What if Jesus doesn't heal you???

Gnarly book about what happens when Jesus wants you to not get better.

Ask and you shall receive???

Denied!

Asks a lot of tough questions about why God inflicts suffering on the world and church instead of healing us like when he walked the earth.

I guess we'll figure it out at the second coming.

I've listened to this book now at work about 5 times.

Excellent work.

Thought provoking.

Wow

Touched my heart. Joni notices God's glory in the darkest of places. She is a wonderful reader as well, bringing her own words to life. A joy to listen to.

All Should Read!

If you could sum up When God Weeps in three words, what would they be?

Very helpful. I recommend all Christians read or listen to this book. I have not read any other book other than the Bible that is more helpful to prepare ones self for life's ups and downs. It is a shortened "abridged" version compared to the book version of the same.

Eye opening

As a quadriplegic myself I needed to hear this and I plan on listening to it multiple times. I love how God used her to speak to so many people through the book. This is a blessing in a book

This books summarizes what God says in His Word about our trials and shines the light on the hope we have in Him.

Does not match the physical book

Please be aware that this audio does not match the book. Great book but I was hoping to hear it read straight from the physical book.

disagreed

Would you try another book from Joni Eareckson Tada and Steven Estes and/or Joni Eareckson Tada?

I love Joni, but I highly disagree with her message in this one. my rating is not so much for the book but the message it contains.

Would you ever listen to anything by Joni Eareckson Tada and Steven Estes again?

Definitely!

What didn’t you like about Joni Eareckson Tada’s performance?

Joni reads well but it did take me a little while to get her style even though I've listened to her many times before.
