âGary A. Haugen, president and CEO, International Justice Mission
âIt used to be that my own religious philosophy was to work hard, charm everyone within spittinâ distance, and do a lot of crafts. So how did this hard-core leftist skeptic find peace and happiness among Bible-quoting, praying-out-loud, born-again evangelicals? I realized that my two choicesâthe existence of a loving God or the reality of evilâwerenât the only options. Option three is that God is good and the world is lousy. But wait. Thereâs more. God knows the world is lousy. Knows it, hates it, and wants us to do something about it...â
âHolly Burkhalter, Good God, Lousy World & Me
For over thirty years, Holly Burkhalter has worked as an international rights advocate for victims of genocide, rape, and injustice.
Throughout most of her career, the heartbreak she encountered around the worldâand in her own lifeâhad convinced her that there was no such thing as a loving God. How could there be? If God Â was there, he should be charged as a war criminal for tolerating atrocities against the young, the poor, and the vulnerable.Â
Then, Holly discovered a new truth: God was thereâin the grief, in the violence, in the questions. And God was good.
It was the greatest, hardest, most radiant surprise of her life.
This is her story.
About: âIn this extraordinary memoir of grace, one of the foremost human rights advocates of the last half century shares her brutally and hilariously honest story of finding God on one of the most unlikely, irreverent, and utterly beautiful pilgrimages through life as it actually is.
