Book Review: Good God Lousy World & Me by Holly Burkhalter

I was impressed with the authors resume and intellectual abilities (and her ability to convey this in writing). It is amazing to me that this woman could work so hard on big issues and have political hurdles that permit progress from being made. These obstacles led her to have many questions  about God, ultimately leading to her developing a faith in God. It is really inspiring to read about the appropriateness of wrestling through questions with God, in contrast with a culture that promotes a view of lack of faith if one questions God. He is, after all, bigger than any of our questions. With all of the ugliness that she has personally seen in the world, the book serves as a great testament to God's power in our broken world.
