It is easy to believe God has abandoned us.
In atrocities from Hitler's Germany to today's Darfur, the meek and the poor are left to fend for themselves. In the United States, we are menaced by violent terrorists who claim to act in God's name. Our own neighbors threaten us with an absolute choice between faith and a fiery path to hell.
Robert Levine steps into the fray with What God Can Do For You Now. A leading American clergyman, he asks us to commit to a relationship with a loving God. We can create a trusting partnership with the Almighty, give time to prayer, and strive to repair the world. In a time when genocide and terrorism wreak their terrible toll, he convinces us that the potential for tragedy exists alongside the potential for miracles, every day and every where.
When we rekindle our faith in God, we rekindle our belief in our own goodness, and start the change we need to repair ourselves and the world.
