We live in a world filled with injustice and evil, and there is nobody on the planet who has not suffered. There are famines and wars, earthquakes and tsunamis, wicked governments, racial prejudices, and diseases. We all have been hurt, attacked, mistreated, deceived, or falsely accused. God allows this. He could stop it. After all, He is unlimited in power and knowledge. But God doesn’t stop it.
In the third title of his series on forgiveness and his most important book to date, R. T. Kendall tackles this question head-on, demonstrating why we need to release God from the blame we put on Him when we feel He has betrayed us.

R. T. Kendall has given much food for thought regarding unrealized visions and promises. Many individuals have felt the sting of knowing God is not going to reveal a particular prophetic word in their time or in their way. Not only does he recount his own experiences of feeling betrayed by a vision but he also reveals Bible personages who have dealt with their own unmet promises. Woven through it all is the awareness that God is sovereign, He does not lie, His purposes are higher than ours. I am grateful Kendall has expressed these inner battles transparently. Because of this, I personally feel encouraged to press in harder in my relationship to my omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent God. This was well worth the read...I plan to reread this book, not only for myself, but to share with others.
I have loved the Lord for a long time and have had a great and intimate relationship with Him, which is why I was so deeply hurt and confused by some very painful and confusing circumstances that seemed like God broke a really important promise. It really threw me for a loop. I found this book through my awesome counselor. The first few chapters (maybe the first half?) didn't seem as helpful to me as the last half. I have gone back more than once to re-read all the parts that are underlined as healing in my relationship with God is an ongoing process. I am incredibly thankful for the part this book has played in that process.
A must read for ALL as there is no one who will ever escape the humanness of asking one or more of these questions, "Why God why?", "What God what?", or even "When God when?". The scriptural revelations Dr. Kendall so powerfully and practically explains are a final knock out punch in the 'Forgiveness trilogy' of forgiving others, yourself, and now in this book, your heavenly Father. Unfortunately, many have chronically ingested what I term 'sincere but sincerely wrong dry denominational doctrine' which heaps guilt upon any who dare ask such questions of a sovereign God. This book is just the spiritual cathartic needed -just what 'The Doctor' ordered for this time in your life. Enjoy and experience 'total freedom'!
