Suffering, failure, sin, illness, loneliness, and disappointment. They come in a seemingly endless variety of shapes and sizes. At times, there seems to be no way to turn either backwards or forwards; there is no light at either end of the tunnel. For many people such experiences raise questions like: Why has this happened to me? Has God abandoned me? Can nobody
help? Is despair all that is left to me?
But there is an answer. In fact there is a whole series of answers. Deserted by God? begins with the question “Can anyone help me?” and draws on the experience of the psalmists in the Old Testament to explain the ways of God and to show how others have walked the same pathway. Deserted by God? provides insight and wisdom to assure us that in truth, we are never deserted.
