When things go very badly, it is all too common for God to be blamed--"It's all in God's plan," "God is testing me," "The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away." In Poor Old God, He Always Gets the Blame, author Arlene Claire Cartwright dares to take the role of His defense attorney, and questions whether He really is to blame for everything that goes wrong. Poor Old God, He Always Gets the Blame constructs God's defense through a close scrutiny of the Bible's Old and New Testaments, and shows the reader a new means of looking at the joyful journey that is life. A positive testimony of reinforcing faith through accepting personal responsibility, Poor Old God, He Always Gets the Blame challenges the reader to reexamine how he or she perceives the world, and is highly recommended.
