‘Why?’ is an engaging read that asks the universal question – why do bad things happen? – and answers them with compelling arguments and real-life stories.
• Why does God allow his creation to suffer?
• Does God even care?
• Can you be a practicing Christian, living in the paradox of believing in a loving God whilst experiencing personal suffering?
The inside of this book is both intellectually profound and comfortingly written. When the tsunami of suffering and tragedy hits your life, its human nature to question our existence, purpose and creation. Why not steer your broken heart, or a friend’s, towards these words which will challenge your thinking and soothe your soul.
Why? by Sharon Dirckx was published by IVP in January 2013 and is our 22128th best seller. The ISBN for Why? is 9781844746194.

'Written with the heart of a mother as well as the mind of a scientist, Why? is not only profound, but tender and comforting. This book is not just about suffering, but written by one who knows suffering to others who are suffering themselves.'- Os Guinness

"Written with the heart of a mother as well as the mind of a scientist, Why? is not only profound, but tender and comforting. This book is not just about suffering, but written by one who knows suffering to others who are suffering themselves." - Os Guinness
"When I was 16, my sports career was called into question when I was run over by a speed boat and got caught in the propellers. Sharon’s book puts words and reason to what I instinctively knew in my heart the day I became an amputee: God loves me, God is good, God is all powerful, and God was mourning the loss of my leg alongside me. I flipped between anger and thankfulness that my life was spared, but the experience of God’s peace was constant. Sharon does a brilliant and honest job of explaining this paradox." - Stefanie Reid, Paralympic Medallist
"Lucid, empathetic and Biblical, this engaging treatment of the enigma of human suffering speaks both to the confused mind and the aching heart, with wisdom, logic and grace. I warmly commend it." - David J Jackman, Past President, The Proclamation Trust
"I love the way Sharon wrestles with the truth. She turns it inside out and inspects its seams. She shakes it to see what falls out. She looks at it through the grid of real life, and defines it with doctrinally solid, scripturally sound conclusions. Both moving and challenging." - Jennifer Kennedy Dean, author of Live a Praying Life, and Executive Director of The Praying Life Foundation
"Sharon writes with sensitivity and insight about the painful reality of suffering in our world which will, in one way or another, affect us all. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone asking the deep questions of life." - Amy Orr-Ewing, UK Director, Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics
