Where the Hell is God?

Posted on 11 March 2013 Gavin Glenn

"Where the Hell Is God? is a page turner. Hard to imagine saying that about a theological book that takes up the age-old question of the goodness of God and the existence of suffering and evil. But it's true. Moved by the terrible accident that left his beloved sister a quadriplegic before she turned thirty, Richard Leonard tackles some of the hardest questions such suffering raises. Every chapter forces you to reassess your image of God. Read this book; it could change your life."

-William A Barry, SJ
author of Spiritual Direction and the Encounter with God

"This brilliant work by a gifted priest is one of the best books you will ever read on the question of suffering—in other words, one of the best books you will ever read on the spiritual life. Wise, insightful, pas­toral, original, experienced and never settling for easy answers, Father Leonard is the compassionate guide that all of us wish we had in times of pain. This profound book is for anyone who will face suffering in life—that is, everyone."
