About the Book

Book:  Why Can’t We Trust God?
Author: Thomas Wise
Genre:  Non-Fiction/Personal Growth
Release Date: January 17, 2020
Why Can't We Trust God BookSo you think God turned his back on us?
Why else would this world be so miserable?
While this world is spinning out of control, we are left with the tough questions:
Why is this happening to me?
Why won’t God stop this?
Why am I in pain?
Why did my child die?
Why do they hate me?
Well, at the time my wife and I were suffering financially due to her loss of a good job. We wondered how we would pay our bills but chose to continue to trust in God as we paid our tithe and held our breath, hoping my income would cover our bills each month. We prayed for relief but never expected the answer would include the total destruction of everything we owned. The tornado crashed through the town, causing death and destruction to everything in its path.
After the grief subsided at the loss of life suffered by our neighbors, we came to realize that we also lost all of our debts and the decay of the older home we owned. We received so much more than we lost.

"Why Can’t We Trust God? " Thomas Wise is a book that is filled with Biblical examples and some from  the author's own life.

This book explains why there is suffering and tells us we need to listen for God's voice and even through the author doesn't come out and say it this way, I think he is saying that the more we trust and rely on God we learn to trust Him more, just as children learn to trust their parents. It explains that "All things work out for the good" Romans 8:28

I recommend this book to all, Christians and non-believers. I don't recommend reading it all in one setting as I did. This book is a book to read and ponder.

I did enjoy reading this book and learned some things but I am not really sure that I would say that this book is really what I was expecting from the title.

I received a contemporary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

More from Tom

“Why Can’t We Trust God?” reflects my struggle with the purpose of suffering. I identify with Jacob, wrestling with God, holding on to my pain and anger, determined to find God’s blessing in compensation for a life that didn’t seem to meet my expectations. I dug my feet in, refusing to be moved, and I was determined to find some confirmation of why life hurts, why I suffer from failure, health, setbacks, and the meaning of life.
“Why Can’t We Trust God?” published by Zion Press, a CrossLink Publishing imprint, describes my exploration of the word WHY in relation to God’s more excellent plan for life on earth.
Why did I write the book, “Why Can’t We Trust God?”  Because we need answers.
