When the worst school shooting in history occurred, Pastor Jim Pace, a Virginia Tech alumnus, was front and center. Media, students, church members, and strangers asked him the same question: If God is loving, why doesn’t He stop disasters before they start? Shoudl We Fire God is Jim’s thoughtful, reasoned response to the idea that God isn’t doing His job very well. In conversational, nonpreachy prose, Jim explains why God allows pain and devastation to occur — and what the consequences would be if He didn’t. And he leads readers to question: if we fire God — who takes His place — woefully imperfect humans? Jim uses real-life examples and his own battles with faith to develop readers’ understanding of God, His true role in their lives, what they should do with doubt and fear, and what He feels when we ache. Richly informative and comforting, Shoudl We Fire God is a must-read for seekers everywhere.
