When psychologist Rocky Devos loses his wife to cancer, he also loses his faith in the fairness of God. For over a year, he lived in the thin space between his love for God and his hatred for what he believed God did. Each night, he bangs on heaven’s gate, demanding an explanation. “Why Rachel, Lord? Why would you let her suffer like that? Why didn’t you do something? Why didn’t you give us a miracle?” The longer his prayers go unanswered, the more frustrated he gets.
Eventually, he meets God’s silence with a silence of his own. But then, a year and four months later, the answer arrives disguised as a homeless vagabond who claims to be the apostle Paul. Clearly, Rocky believes he is delusional. But in their court-appointed sessions, he finds a kindred spirit. As Paul unpacks the pain of losing his wife in childbirth, the two men connect. Rocky believes he’s there to help Paul. Paul believes the opposite.
The audiobook explores the thin space between faith and doubt. It’s so thin, in fact, that sometimes, for the briefest of moments, the two places touch. Rocky’s questions are our questions. At some point, we will all lose someone we love. When we do, we will find comfort in the company of those who have walked the path of suffering before us. Rocky invites us to join him on his journey of redemption. His conversations with Paul will not only change the way he thinks about God, they may do the same for you as well.
