Dear God, We Need To Talk by Darren Schalk

Bio

Why doesn’t God work on my schedule? And other burning life questions resolved…kind of.

Have you ever wondered why it rains on Saturdays or why bad things happen to good people? Darren Schalk’s new book, Dear God, We Need to Talk (Passio 2014) helps readers explore their toughest questions about God, with a resolve of confidence in God’s sovereignty.

If we could just figure God out, life—as well as faith—would be so much easier. But life and faith aren’t easy. Schalk takes this challenge head on as he ponders everyday events, and then filters it all through a modern but biblical worldview in a delightfully witty and honest way.

“Many times God asks us to do things outside the realm of what the world would dub as ‘sanity.’ But I’ve come to realize that sanity is all in the eye of the beholder,” Schalk writes. “I don’t fully understand God or His ways, and I probably never will. I guess this book is, in some way, my attempt to figure Him out. It’s futile, I suppose—kind of like chasing the wind—but fun nevertheless.”

Each chapter ends with interactive, thought-provoking questions that will cause readers to ponder their own lives, and smile with humility at the realization of how little we understand about God.

But we don’t have to figure Him out. “It’s all about faith! It’s not about intellect; it’s not about having all the answers; it’s not about asking the right questions in the right manner—it’s about trusting God even when we don’t have answers.”
