This insightful and deeply personal book tackles the questions caused by a God who doesn't always do what we think He's supposed to do. Yancey answers these questions with piercing honesty and biblical certainty. He takes us beyond the things that make for disillusionment to a deeper faith, a certitude of God's love, and a thirst to reach not just for what God gives, but for who He is. Large Print edition of the CBA best-seller.

This is such an Amazing read. Please buy and read. I can't stress enough how much light it has shed on my life. I bought it because as a Christian I often encounter people who question God and his love for us so I wanted to get some insight on what this book said. I was extremely glad I read this. Absolutely recommend.
I was recommended this book by a pastor when I was going through a really hard time in my life and I was having a kind of faith crisis. Honestly when I read this book, I had a break through spiritually and my faith in the Lord was fully restored, it was like a switch went on. I was in a place of agonizing emotional pain and was being beat up by the enemy and the world so if you are going through that, hang in there and read this book. Looking back, the Lord was with me and He has fully restored me, though I couldnt feel it at the time, and He's with you and will restore you!
I usually read the "one star" reviews first to see where they are coming from but in this case, I simply cannot understand their disappointment in this book at all. I respect their opinions, whether I agree with them or not.

However, I do believe they missed the point. I do not have my copy of "Disappointment With God" here in front of me to refer to so please bear with me on this. The most powerful statement in the entire book was made by the man Yancey interviewed that lost his family, then was involved in a car accident and left him with a bad eye and a speech impediment. Yancey asked him something like, "Are you disappointed that God (caused/made/allowed) this to happen to you?" The man thought a second and answered, "Not at all, because God is not a 'God of life' He is a God of faith. Whatever happens to us is just life and God has little to do with it." It was something of this nature. Read this book carefully again to see and understand why. Does this mean Mr. Yancey has more foresight and intuition than all other persons of faith? No. It does not. It simply means Mr. Yancey has offered a viewpoint that makes far more sense than any other viewpoint I have ever heard or read why God does not intervene more than He does on our behalf.

Most of us tend to blame God when bad things happen to us; "He could have stopped it!" or "Why did He do this to me?" or "Why did He allow this to happen?" But, He did not stop or prevent these tragedies. Yancey goes on to say that God is so . . . huge, so massive and is the ultimate in intelligence that if He appeared and tried to explain why He did things the way He does, it might be like trying to explain how a Pentium computer works to some Kung San Bushmen. We human beings are NOT the ultimate in intelligence.

One of the one star reviewers referred to the book as a 'horror'. The way I see it, Mr. Yancey's viewpoint is as though he is out standing among the multitudes with the rest of us looking in the same direction we are and looking at the same thing. He is not up high on a pulpit preaching 'down' with his vast knowledge to those of us without hope, in despair and the downtrodden. Yancey presents his viewpoint simply as another human being with the same questions any of us might have.

To those who have suffered the loss of loved ones and wondered "Where in the world was God when I needed Him?", I would fully recommend this book as it is an eye opener.
I always enjoy anything written by Yancey, so this book isn't any different. He always makes you wonder about things that were said in the Bible, & how it relates to these modern times. He keeps it simple reading for any level of religious beliefs, whether you're Christian or not.
I wanted to read this book because I have felt disappointment with God on more than one occasion. I have chosen to have faith and believe He is watching, He cares, and He loves me and has a good plan for me. This book , however caused me to look at my faith and God's view of humanity differently. I think it will help me be a better listener to those who are going through disappointment with God and perhaps have a better conversation with them to offer the encouragement I feel and experience in my relationship with God.
Yancey does a great job of laying out the issues of why an individual would be disappointed with God. Any person wrestling with why does God seem silent and uninvolved--even if he exists--will appreciate and identify with his openness and candor. But there wasn't (at least for me) a real clear reason as to why a person shoudn't be disappointed with God. In the end it boils down to a decision; Be disappointed with Him or be disappointed without him. But I guess that's the nature of faith. Generally, I liked the book. This is my second time reading it.
Why do some people respond to disappointment with God with rejection and others with faith. Yancey takes you on a journey in which it is okay to question and doubt. He gives the most clear explanation of why the old testament matters and looks at the various ways God interacts with his creation through time. In this age, it is hard for our teens to find any faith at all. For me, this book will help me talk to my teen about faith.
This book really dives in and gets straight to the point. Disappointment With God offers to talk about the things you never wanted to talk about or were afraid to talk about with others. It allows room to voice the negativity, but only to guide you into hope and love. The author brings out these hidden fears and negativity into the light and weighs them against Biblical truths. You may find that it stirs up a lot of things that you had never acknowledged about your own disappointment with God, so it can be a bit heavy to read. By examining these thoughts, Yancey helps you to be honest with yourself and a provides safe place for learning and growing through it.
