Heartbreak is impartial. Tragedies, global or personal, strike every day, and people discover they have been swept out to sea by waves of destruction, anxiety, and catastrophe. How can Christians who believe in divine intervention understand the times when the lights go out and no miracle of deliverance appears? RobertWisehasmorethanapassingrelationshipwithtragedy. He has not only lost loved ones; he has been on the front lines of the mayhem that seems to increase every year. Wise was the first clergyman on the scene following the Murrah Building bombing in Oklahoma City. He ministered to frightened people after 9/11. He has encountered countless people experiencing tragedy, all of them asking the same question: Why do the innocent suffer? When There Is No Miracle imparts the lessons Wise has learned in the midst of his own questioning. Eachchapterencouragesthosewhostruggle,anddemonstrates unexpected positive benefits of pain and suffering. Wise shares the experiences of those he has met in his ministry who faced times that seemed to be devoid of God’s involvement. Yet, as Wise shows here, God is always behind the scenes, working for the ultimate good, even when we can’t understand how. In this succinct volume, Christians can find new hope, learn to reconcile their faith with times of emptiness, and discover a new depth of meaning in the crucifixion of Christ. Robert L. Wise is an archbishop in the Communion of Evangel- ical Episcopal Churches and director of the Office of Ecumenical Relations. He has been awarded the title of Apostolic Representa- tive for Christian Unity by Pope Francis.
