Missing Pieces: Real Hope When Life Doesn’t Make Sense
by Jennifer Rothschild

Does God care? Is He fair? Is He even there? Explore these and other questions in this realistic look at the messy, mysterious uncertainties of faith. Gods ways don't always make sense, but He is trustworthy. Come close to Him. Trust Him more than your feelings. God will reveal Himself and fill in your missing pieces with this study from the author that brought us Hosea.
