When God Turns Off the Lights by Cecil Murphey *****

Amazon Link for When God Turns Off the Lights

When God Turns Off the Lights is a deep and personal story of the author, a dedicated Christian, who suddenly falls into a time of spiritual emptiness. He feels as if God has turned His face away. It is a thoughtful look at the feelings and thoughts of someone who believes he has been left in the “darkness” and a look at the verses in Scripture about this very subject.

There is neither condemnation nor accusations of lack of faith. Instead, this book helps the Christian walk through some of the reasons an individual may feel separated from God. It also explains that sometimes God allows this to happen to even the most faithful.

Beautifully written and packed with relevant Scripture verses to help the struggling Christian. The author brings us through his painful time and into his victory. He also shares how the silence of God helped him to grow even more.

As someone who has been through darkness, I believe this is the best book I have ever read for a suffering Christian. I highly recommend this book, and I thank the author for sharing his experience.
