When pain is real, why is God silent?

This Bible study, based on acclaimed author Frederick Buechner’s book A Crazy, Holy Grace, examines his collection of essays on pain, loss, and the healing power of memories. Participants will explore God’s tender grace and learn how to be stewards of the pain in our lives. In addition, participants will cover such topics as the power of hidden secrets, loss of a dearly beloved, letting go, resurrection from the ruins, peace, and listening for the quiet voice of God. 

This Participant Guide provides an introduction to the main text and can also stand alone with additional commentary and questions for a four week study. With summaries and commentary for each essay, the book provides questions and prompts for reflection and discussion.
