10774 Play the Ball Where the Monkey Drops It; Why We Suffer and How We Can Hope
Gregory Knox Jones
Harper San Francisco
ISBN 0-688-17142-7
C - Care / CJ / Book
Why must we suffer? Gregory Knox Jones tackles this enduring issue of life with clarity and intelligence, offering hope to anyone who is struggling with the pain and confusion of unjust suffering. Dr. Jones recounts the life stories he has seen in his work as a pastor: parents losing their child in a car accident, a runner coping with the amputation of his leg. Every day good people suffer, raising the question: Why is this so, if there is a just and all-powerful God? The response that God works in mysterious ways that are beyond human understanding simply isn't adequate in the face of such profound suffering. Dr. Jones, who has more than twenty years' experience in the parish, found that he had to rethink his ideas as he ministered to people in pain and grief. The wisdom that he gained enabled him to lead people through the most difficult circumstances to healing and new hope.
Now, in Play the Ball Where the Monkey Drops It, Jones gently guides us through the inadequacies of the traditional solutions to the problem of evil, offering practical and compassionate answers to the deepest questions rooted in the experience of everyday life. Notable for its relevant real-life examples and its clarity, this book offers guidance and solace to anyone who has ever

10770 Do Yourself a Favor...Forgive; Learn How to Take Control of Your Life Through Forgiveness
Joyce Meyer
Faith Words
ISBN 9780446547277
C - Care / CM / Book
Building on her signature message of using the mind to master difficult emotions, Joyce Meyer focuses on the most destructive, insidious one of all: anger. It is responsible for broken relationships, sleepless nights, high blood pressure and ulcers. It destroys friendships, marriages and families, not to mention peace of mind. Anger is especially hard to handle for many Christians who have learned from childhood that "good Christians don't get angry." Meyer argues that properly handled, anger is an alert system that something is wrong and needs to be resolved.

10726 When You Lose a Loved One
Charles L. Allen
Fleming H. Revell
ISBN 978-0-8007-5801-3
C - Care / CA / Book
When You Lose a Loved One presents a hopeful message of resurrection and eternal life a message Christians have heard so many times before. But in death's aftermath, people often need assurance of what they know is true about life after death. So Charles Allen offers the bereaved a beautifully crafted reminder that the Easter message robs death of its terror and promises a solution to life's mysteries. Intermingled with Allen's prose are the comforting poems of Helen Steiner Rice. With an updated look and new organization, this encouraging book will bring meaning and hope to those who have lost loved ones.

For anyone who has ever been hurt by life.
"I knew that one day I would write this book. I would write it out of my own need to put into words some of the most important things I have come to believe and know. And I would write it to help other people who might one day find themselves in a similar predicament. I would write it for an those people who wanted to go on believing, but whose anger at God made it hard for them to hold on to their faith and be comforted by religion. And I would write it for an those people whose love of God and devotion to Him led them to blame themselves for their suffering and persuade themselves that they deserved it."
