God you’re Breaking my Heart – What is God’s Response to Suffering and Evil?


Brian Grogan SJ

Out of stock

What is God’s Response to Suffering and Evil? The line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. It is easy to denounce evildoers, but more difficult to understand them. This means that we, who are at best imperfect, have a hard time understanding ourselves as well as others.

This book offers hope and challenge. The title has a double meaning: the slow sad music of humankind can indeed break our hearts; but God allows and uses suffering only to enlarge our heart’s capacity for that greater love that is its destiny. The glimmers of light offered by the Christian tradition can become a steady beam that can enable us to find our way home, even in heavy seas.

Brian Grogan SJ is the author of the classic bestseller, Finding God in All Things and many other titles on Ignatian spirituality.
