Summary
The author, a journalist and spiritual seeker, has always struggled with the most basic questions of the Christian faith. The question he tackles in this book concerns the practical value of belief in God. His search for the answer to this question took him to some amazing settings around the world: Mumbai, India when the firing started during the terrorist attacks; at the motel where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated; on the Virginia Tech campus soon after the massacre; an AA convention; and even to a conference for women in prostitution
Summary
Reflects upon the practical value of belief in God by examining ten grief-stricken locations around the world, including the site of the Mumbai terrorist attacks and a conference for women in prostitution
