Like David, Job, Jeremiah, and other saints of old, Jennifer Rothschild asks the hard questions of God with startling honesty and refreshing transparency. And, akin to Jacob, Jennifer wrestles mightily with God through the dark night of her soul — that readers might experience the relief of His light and the certain assurance of His blessings.

After many years of great friendship and Bible study with Jennifer Rothschild, I have witnessed her immense passion for Christ’s ability to heal and inspire others.

In this tender book full of compassion, Jennifer wrestles through the questions that can rise to the surface during painful circumstances. “Why is this happening?” “Is God there and does He care?” Unlike other resources that wrestle with these deep issues from the head, Jennifer does so from the heart. She will show you how to have unrelenting courage to plead for God’s power and, at the same time, for remarkable strength to trust God’s plan. This is a book I’ll be recommending for years to come.

Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people? This is the faith-wrecking question asked by believers and atheists alike. It has caused millions of the faithful to doubt everything they thought they knew about God. Jennifer Rothschild speaks to this issue like few others — offering real answers with refreshing personal insights, solid biblical truth, and genuine heartfelt compassion. She can speak to you because she’s been there and she cares. If your life isn’t making sense, read God is Just Not Fair, and discover how God is using your trials to lead you to hope, healing, and joy.

What Jennifer teaches us is rooted and grounded in truth. What is truth? It’s God’s Word which sets us apart and enables us to live in the courage of faith. How this is exemplified in my precious friend’s life! I am so proud of you, Jennifer, for taking us to the bread of life and nourishing our souls.

At some point in our lives, I am betting that every one of us has cried out, “Why, God?” My friend Jennifer understands that heart cry at the deepest level — and has a lifetime of wisdom to share with us. God Is Just Not Fair is a wonderful, wonderful book. Jennifer does not settle for pat, easy answers but encourages us to ask the hard questions and then hold tight to the eternal perspective that is the only way the answers will truly be found.

“God, is this fair?” My wife and I asked this question after the passing of our precious daughter. The fact is, everything in life doesn’t turn out the way we expect — just ask Jennifer Rothschild, one of our favorite LIFE Today guests who became blind as a fifteen-year old. With candor, Jennifer deals head-on with deep, probing questions many of us have asked. For those who wonder if God hears their prayers . . . cares . . . or even if God is good, this book will point you to Hope. Ultimately, “what matters most is not the questions,” Jennifer writes, “but the heart of the questioner.”
