Book Review – Where is God? Dr. John Townsend


Where is God? I am sure that at one time or another every person has or will ask that question. Where is God? by Dr. John Townsend seeks to find the presence, purpose, and power of God in difficult times.
I could not wait to read through the pages of this thought provoking book, I was anxious to see what Dr John Townsend, a psychologist, would have to say. Townsend not only helps the reader to understand what this question really means, but also gives practical solutions to get through difficult times.
My favorite part of the book comes from chapter 13 where Townsend discusses the foundational ideas about God’s nature as seen in the bible. He uses verses form the bible to illustrate the goodness of God. It was also in this chapter that my eyes were opened to how our own attitudes can drastically change the situation we are in. I was challenged and encouraged to become more optimistic in my own life situations.
Although this book answered the question and much more, I did not find it as captivating as I had hoped it would be. I would still highly recommend it. I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars!


This is my own review. I was given a free copy of this book in order to review it, but no other compensation was given.
