Walking with God through Pain and Suffering


THE QUESTION is as old as time, and has been grappled with by minds far greater than most of us can claim to possess. The psalmist asked it in Psalm 22:1 when he wrote “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” About a thousand years later, Jesus asked it when he quoted those words while hanging on the cross.  C.S.

Film & Faith: Meeting God at the Movies


By Steve Page & Julie Golding Page

AS THE FILM credits rolled and the house lights came on, there was a buzz in the cinema. Was the hero lost forever, or had he finally achieved his heart’s desire and returned home from exile?

Paperback, 224 pages, $17.99
