Should We Fire God?: Book Review & Giveaway
About The Book:
When the worst school shooting in history occurred, Pastor Jim Pace, a Virginia Tech alumnus, was front and center. Media, students, church members, and strangers asked him the same question: If God is loving, why doesn't He stop disasters before they start? SHOULD WE FIRE GOD is Jim's thoughtful, reasoned response to the idea that God isn't doing His job very well. In conversational, nonpreachy prose, Jim explains why God allows pain and devastation to occur--and what the consequences would be if He didn't.
About The Author:
Jim Pace is copastor at New Life Christian Fellowship at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. He helped found the Ecclesia Network, a group of emerging missional churches that are trying to figure out how to lead communities of faith in Jesus in our culture today. Jim and his wife have been married fourteen years and have three children. This is his first book.
Should We Fire God? will bring you on a journey of raw emotion as we as Christians ask, "Why does God allow all bad things to happen?" This book was very well written and is very easy to understand. Pace walks through the tragedy of the shooting at Virginia Tech University and you will learn that "God is protecting us through, rather than from, the difficulties of our world" (p.142). If you are looking for a book that will show you how we should handle grief and sorrow than this is the book for. It is scripturally solid in its theology and will be an encouragement to all who read it! I highly recommend it and give it a thumbs up!
