Philip Yancey has a gift for articulating the knotty issues of faith.
In Disappointment with God, he poses three questions that Christians wonder but seldom ask aloud: This insightful and deeply personal book points to the odd disparity between our concept of God and the realities of life. Why, if God is so hungry for relationship with us, does he seem so distant?
Why, if God cares for us, do bad things happen? What can we expect from God after all? Yancey answers these questions with clarity, honesty, and biblical assurance. He points us beyond life’s disappointments and the cynicism they can breed to a stronger, wiser faith, a confidence in God’s deep love for us, and a thirst to reach hy just for what God gives, but for who God is.

I can’t stress enough how much light it has shed on my life. I bought it because as a Christian I often encounter people who question God and his love for us so I wanted to get some insight on what this book said. I was extremely glad I read this. I was recommended this book by a pastor when I was going through a really hard time in my yanxey and I was having a kind of faith crisis.
Honestly when I read this book, I had a break through spiritually and my faith in the Lord was disappointmnet restored, it was like a switch went on. I was in a place of agonizing emotional pain and was being beat up by the enemy and the world so if you are going through that, hang in there and read this book. Looking back, the Lord was with me and He has fully restored me, though I couldnt feel it at the time, and He’s with you and will restore you!
Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. I usually read the “one star” reviews first to see where they are coming from but in this case, I simply cannot understand their disappointment in this book at all. I respect their opinions, whether I agree with them or not. However, I do believe they missed the point. I do not have my copy of “Disappointment With God” here in front of me to refer to so please bear with me on this. The most powerful statement in the entire book was made by the man Yancey interviewed that lost his family, then was involved in a car accident disappointmdnt left him with a bad eye and a speech impediment.
Whatever happens to us is just life and God has little to do with it. Read this book carefully again to see and understand why. Does this mean Mr. Yancey has more foresight and intuition than all other persons of faith? It simply means Mr. Yancey has offered a viewpoint that makes far more sense than any other viewpoint I have ever heard or read why God does not intervene more than He does on our behalf.
Most of us tend to blame God when bad things happen to us; “He could have stopped it! Yancey goes on to say that God is so. We human beings wwith NOT the ultimate in intelligence. One of the one star reviewers referred to the book as a ‘horror’. The way I see it, Mr.
Yancey’s viewpoint is as though he is out standing among the philio with the rest of us looking in the same direction we are and looking at the same thing.

dusappointment He is not up high on a pulpit preaching ‘down’ with his vast knowledge to those of us without hope, in despair and the downtrodden. Philipp presents his viewpoint simply as another human being with the same questions any of us might have.
To those who have suffered the loss of loved ones and wondered “Where in the world was God when I needed Him? In this book Philip Yancey dares to step on some very gritty and raw territory for Christians, many would rather live in denial than admit that sometimes God ‘seems’ distant and disconnected from our lives. Then Philip skillfully develops his convincing arguments for God always coming through in His way and His time, in spite of our limited, mortal understanding.
If your struggling with your faith, this book will help you to gain a Biblical perspective that will turn the light on and remove any excuse for doubting disappoinmtent goodness of God. I always enjoy anything written by Yancey, so this book isn’t any different. He keeps it simple reading for any level of religious beliefs, whether you’re Christian or not.
I wanted to read this book because I have felt disappointment with God on more than one sith. I have chosen to have faith and believe He is watching, He cares, and He loves me and disappointmentt a good plan for me.
This bookhowever caused me to look at my faith and God’s view of humanity differently. I gkd it will help me be a better listener to those who are going through disappointment with God and perhaps have a better conversation with them to offer the encouragement I feel and experience in my relationship with God. Yancey does a great job of laying out the issues of why an individual would be disappointed with God.
Any person wrestling with why does God seem silent and uninvolved–even if he exists–will appreciate and identify with his openness and candor. But there wasn’t at least for me a real clear reason as to why a person shoudn’t be disappointed with God.
In the end it boils down to a decision; Be disappolntment with Him or be disappointed without him.
But I guess that’s the phiilip of faith. Generally, I liked the book. This is my second time reading it.
Why do some people respond to disappointment with God with rejection and others with faith.
