Men who are highly spiritual don’t draw much attention to themselves. They tend to be quiet and unassuming. They rely on the Holy Spirit to get things done. They allow other people, and particularly God, to get the glory. Larry Waters is such a man. He had an idea. The idea turned into a class. The class led to a book. Hopefully, the book will result in many changed lives. Why, O God? is a book about suffering. Both Larry Waters and Roy Zuck have experienced their share of suffering. They have pulled together a lot of contributors to produce a book worthy of our time to read.
The main thesis of the book revolves around what we believe are weaknesses in many churches, and the Christian community as a whole, concerning a proper application and biblical response to suffering and disability.
Dr. Waters was interviewed by a local Christian radio station, KCBI, recently and the full full Interview is transcribed on the Bible X blog.
