Can God be Trusted by Fr. Thomas D. Williams

Today I learned about a new book by Fr. Thomas D. Williams, entitled Can God be Trusted? For long-time readers of A Catholic Life, remember that Fr. Williams is the author of Greater Than You Think, a book which I wholeheartedly recommended and offered on my blog as a Book Giveaway Contest.

Product Description

Father Williams explores the most common obstacles that prevent people from trusting God, including personal betrayals, unfulfilled expectations, and seemingly unanswered prayers. He then explains what is reasonable to expect from God and offers practical tips for ways to grow in trust.

Williams is becoming a revered voice in the Christian community for his insightful writings on issues that really matter to Christians. In this new book, Father Williams will help readers understand, not only how to trust God in spite of doubts and confusion, but to truly know God can be trusted.

About the Author

FR. THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, LC, is dean of the theology school at the Regina Apostolorum Pontifical University in Rome. He has also worked extensively for Sky News in Britain covering church and ethical issues. For both NBC and Sky News, Williams covered the final illness and death of Pope John Paul II, the 2005 papal conclave, and the election of Pope Benedict XVI. Williams has appeared as analyst on church affairs for CNN, CBS, ABC, and Fox News and now serves as consultant on Vatican affairs for NBC News and MSNBC.
