Faith in Crisis: When Bad Things Happen to Good People

No matter how blessed our lives, how charmed our existence or how lucky we are, things inevitably and irrevocably go wrong. When tragedy strikes, balance is disrupted, destroying schemas we have developed for understanding and coping with the world. Legitimate questions arise about life, fate and the presence of God.

Meet five contemporary thinkers who have gone through challenges and come out the other side. Their difficult journeys culminated in theologies that provide resilience and the deeper understanding necessary to thrive. By shining light on dark events, they illuminate a path for all of us.
