In this collection of sermons for Ash Wednesday through Easter 7, Wayne Brouwer’s From Upside Down to Right Side Upanswers the question that many of us have, sometimes more often than we might like: “Where is God?”

When bad things happen to good people, or when the outcome we get is not what we expected, Brouwer encourages readers to turn back to the teachings of Jesus and the Bible. Brouwer retells many Bible stories in his own words throughout the book and his interpretations lead to new insights and perspectives.

“It is night, and it is dark. But Jesus is here with us. And regardless of what comes tomorrow, he has a wonderful song of love for us…” (from the Maundy Thursday sermon).
