Item Description...
Overview
Written as a result of his wife's diagnosis of a debilitating brain tumor and fight for her life, Greig asks the timeless questions of what it means to suffer and to pray and to suffer through the silence because your prayers seem unanswered. This silence, Greig relates, is the most difficult. The world collapses, people avoid you and don't know what to say, and so you turn to God and you pray. You need Him more than ever before, but somehow even God Himself seems on mute. Honest, heart-searching, and intensely personal, God on Mute looks at the hard side of prayer, how to respond when there seem to be no answers, and how to cope with those who seek to interpret our experience for us. Here is a story of faith, hope, and love beyond all understanding.

Publishers Description
Pete Greig, the acclaimed author of "Red Moon Rising, " has written his most intensely personal and honest account yet in "God on Mute," a book born out of his wife Samie's fight for her life and diagnosis of a debilitating brain tumor. Greig asks the timeless questions of what it means to suffer and to pray and to suffer through the silence because your prayers seem unanswered. This silence, Greig relates, is the hardest thing. The world collapses. Then all goes quiet. Words can't explain, don't fit, won't work. People avoid you and don't know what to say. So you turn to Him and you pray. You need Him more than ever before. But somehow...even God Himself seems on mute. In this heart-searching, honest and deeply profound book, Pete Greig looks at the hard side of prayer, how to respond when there seem to be no answers and how to cope with those who seek to interpret our experience for us. Here is a story of faith, hope and love beyond all understanding.

God on Mute is an eye-opener book! recomended to everyone no mater what their religious views are.
 
Message of importance  Mar 27, 2007
Pete Grieg, founder of the 24-7 Prayer Ministry, tackles the tough questions we face during times when it seems like God is silent, and our prayers are not being heard--much less answered.

Facing his wife's health problems and a crisis of his own faith, Greig examines Christ's last three days on earth, finding insight in this slice of Christ's life during which even the prayers of Jesus seemed met with Divine silence.

On Maundy Thursday, Jesus asks the Father to spare him from suffering. On Good Friday, Christ cries out "God, why have you forsaken me?" As the events of Holy Week unfold, it is clear that God allows suffering and does not answer the 'why' questions, even when Jesus asks.

Throughout the book, author Greig scatters fifteen possible reasons for unanswered prayer, including having selfish motives, praying against the laws of nature, and the fact that our own fallible free will is often at work. Each chapter of the books ends with an appropriate prayer through which the reader is drawn to seek and understand God's ways more deeply.

Appendices include a list of heroes of the faith, with their own experiences of unanswered prayer, plus a discussion guide for small groups and a personal checklist that the reader can use to evaluate her or his own prayer life.

Avoiding simplistic formulas, this is a much-needed book for those who suffer and seem unable to access God's help. Clearly, the author is a fellow struggler--but one who points the way to grace and maturity.

The Foreword is by Brian McLaren, author of numerous Christian books.

Faith and Courage  Mar 12, 2007
Pete Greig gives us an example of real faith and courage as he tells the story of the perilous journey he and his wife Samie have been on since a tumor the size of an orange was removed from her brain and she was left with chronic epilepsy. Though leaders in an international prayer ministry called 24-7, Pete and his wife have had to deal with the issue of praying hard for healing in Samie's body, being grateful for the preservation of her life, but having to accept just partial healing. Using the prayers of Jesus' final days (agony in the garden on Thursday, from the cross on Friday, the silence of Saturday, and the triumph of Easter) is a brilliant way to show that our prayers may come out of anguish--but so did those of Jesus. In the end, Pete and his wife are left with real faith (stripped to its essence) in the true God, and they show us how to go forward in life with the best prayer of all: "Lord, have mercy..."
