About the Book

At times we find ourselves in situations that we think are unjust, unspeakable, or just not right. We may shake out fists at God and then feel guilty. I DON’T WANT TO GOD is the opportunity to see that wrestling with God is normal. Dr. Charlie Mayson looks at the lives of Isaac, Abraham, Sarah, and the other heroes of the faith named in the Paul’s letter to the Hebrews. He shows us that wrestling with God was not only for these bible heroes, but is normal for us as we struggle to do God’s will.
