Healing the broken and the brokenhearted. Forgiving the unforgiveable. Loving the unlovable. God’s love can be astonishing—even foolish, by modern standards. Author, Franciscan friar, and retreat leader Fr. Dan Horan speaks weekly to groups of various kinds on what it means to be a follower of Jesus in the twenty-first century. His insights are often counterintuitive, in the best sense of the Gospel. This collection of essays is no exception. God Is Not Fair explores what it means to faithfully live by vows—counterculturally—today.  Stock #: B53141

Awesome and helpful title

A good read and very helpful on the journey!

Very thought provoking!

Two thoughts from reading the title of this book drew me to it immediately. One, I thought,” thank God he isn’t fair” and two, “I need to practice more gratitude.” If you are interested in thinking deeply about living as a Christian who is in the world but not of the world this book is for you.
