As I pastor I am always looking for resources to engage people who are in the midst of suffering. I generally find one of two things in popular Christian resources. One, God gave you this tragedy ("Get over it, God is justified in doing as He pleases"). And two, God did not give you this tragedy ("Let's blame someone else')..

I experienced Johnson's approach to be one of the most thoughtful and honest I've encountered.
