10 Things I Hate About God

And How He Won Me Anyway

Trusting God’s goodness
when he isn’t safe

Have you ever said, “If I was God. . .” ?

How do you reconcile a God of love and grace with a world that is full of suffering?

Why doesn’t God do something?

10 Things I Hate About God (as yet, unpublished) will help you develop a trusting relationship with God his actions, or non-actions, are inexplicable.

In Susan’s counterintuitive book, she shares her experiences of trusting God in challenging circumstances. She grew up in an unchurched home; her husband was diagnosed with cancer when their three children were under 6 years old and; she struggled with being a pastor’s wife.

Susan’s Bible knowledge, experience and practical approach will help you reconcile God’s extravagant love and grace with his apparent lack of intervention in a world that desperately needs fixing. Susan teaches how we can come to grips with a God who is more loving than we can comprehend, and holier than we can imagine.
