What do you do when God is silent and your prayers aren't working?

Writing out of the pain of his wife's fight for her life but also the wonder of watching the prayer movement they founded touch many lives, Pete Greig wrestles with the dark side of prayer and emerges with a hard-won message of hope, comfort and profound biblical insight for all who suffer in silence.

"If you are hurting and secretly wondering 'Where is God?' and 'Why's this happened to me?' and How come my prayers aren't working?' then I dedicate this book to you." 

The God on Mute Journey.

Leading the reader carefully through the four days of Christ's passion, Pete Greig pauses at each stage to ask one of the great questions we ask when we suffer:

+ Maundy Thursday ~ 'How am I going to get through this?'
+ Good Friday ~ 'Why aren't my prayers being answered?'
+ Holy Saturday ~ 'Where is God when heaven is silent?'
+ Easter Sunday ~ 'When will my prayers be answered?
