"Torn" by Jud Wilhite is a book about learning to have faith in God, even when it feels like He is failing you. Personally, I can relate to the topic of this book - after all, who among us hasn't felt disappointment and despair? Wilhite uses biblical references, as well as personal experiences to show us how, even in our darkest moments, God will never desert us. I think that this book is reassuring, but unless you have actually been through the dark times, and come out on the other side, it is hard to really relate. Most of us are reading this book in the midst of turmoil, and while it is reassuring, and a reminder that God is still here, it's hard to really relate to the book. I liked it, and thought it was very well written. But, it isn't full of the answers to why God lets us suffer or endure pain. So, if that is what you are seeking, keep looking. I would give this a 3/5.
