About the Book

This book deals with questions we might ask when troubles unexpectedly tear up the road ahead of us.  Is there a broad underlying purpose in life?  How does one deal with the cruelty and treachery we suffer when tornadoes of evil, with all their darkness, duplicity, and terror churn our way.  And yet what can we say about the profound beauty we sometimes experience?  The responses in this book reflect the author’s attraction to the writers in the Bible who knew about both rough roads and rewarding paths.
