Gary Habermas has long been known for his role in Christian apologetics, in particular his contribution to the argument for the resurrection of Jesus. Yet Habermas proves himself to be much more than a one trick pony by tackling the daunting challenge of the supposed silence of God in Why Is God Ignoring Me? Others have addressed this question—most notably in my mind Philip Yancey in his book Disappointment With God—but Habermas covers new ground and gives answers both emotionally and intellectu ...more

This is a hard review for me to write because I want to absolutely adore every book that I review. And so far I have. I couldn’t get into Why Is God Ignoring Me? and I’m not sure why. It’s not dry. It seems like a well written book. I jumped at the chance to review it because I’ve been there. I’ve been in where I have felt is the depths of despair where I actually turned my back on God because I couldn’t understand why if he loved me so much he would allow me to go through so much pain, why he w ...more

This review originally appeared on my blog, Jacob's Café.

My most recent review for the Tyndale Blog Network is Gary Habermas' Why is God Ignoring Me?: What To Do When It Feels Like He's Giving You the Silent Treatment. Tyndale House Publishers provided me a complimentary copy of the book to review.

With the focus of this blog on doubt and struggles, this is one of the most relevant reviews. When I saw the title and description, I jumped at the chance to review it, very excited with what I saw. I

COVER: The road, to me, represents to me life and the man standing there, he has no idea what do because he can't hear God. And that perfectly captures the question 'Why Is God Ignoring Me?' Amazing conceptual photography that holds a deeper meaning.

CONTENT: One word. Amazing. This book could not be written any better. The writing is easy to understand, there are anecdotes to make you feel that not only you have experienced this... What I loved most are there are not only multiple anwers to ques

A lot of what Habermas says is not new. What I find useful however, is the way he presents the information in short sharp points that help me internalize scriptural passages that speak to me.

An odd book that takes unexpected turns in developing its argument. I found it up satisfying although had some good points.

Gary R. Habermas was born just outside Detroit, Michigan in 1950. Although he was raised in a Christian home and attended a German Baptist Church, he began having serious doubts about Christianity. For more than ten years, he faced uncertainty about key Christian claims and searched other religious and non-religious systems, especially naturalism. His studies centered chiefly on investigating vari ...more
