"God, where are you?" is a question many of us ask, at many points in life - usually when we don't know what path to take, or where to turn in despair. In God, Where Are You? Carlos Mesters suggests that to answer this question we should turn to the place turned to again and again throughout history; the Bible itself.
God, Where Are You? provides a way to approach the Bible as millions of ordinary people have, for many hundreds of years. Carlos Mesters suggests that the Bible can be considered the Christian family album, and its contents a guide for discovering who we are, where we came from, and - of course - where God is in our lives.
Scholars may study and debate, argue and date, searching for the perfect answers to who wrote down which part of the Bible and when, but this is not the total of what the Bible is. God, Where Are You? shows that it is the people of the Bible, and the stories of how God touches them, that have the most to tell us.
Mesters looks at the stories of Adam and Eve, Abraham, Moses and the prophets, as well as the story of Job and the Psalms of David from the Hebrew Scriptures. Then, he turns to the Gospels, the Sermon on the Mount, the Parables, Miracles, and Life of Jesus. Throughout, he shows how the Bible, in speaking about people, also speaks about God being always, firmly, in their midst.
