Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do bad things happen at all? Do things happen for a reason? Or, is all of life just an inexplicable, chaotic crapshoot? And, while we're at it, what exactly is the point of life, anyway? We've struggled to answer these questions ever since the capacity to pose them first popped into our heads. The results have ranged from the philosophical to the religious to the laughably superstitious. No one definitively knows the answers, of course, despite our seemingly inexhaustible proclivity for analyzing them, debating them, and even violently dispatching one another because of them. But, why? Could it be that we simply are missing the obvious? Based on author Brent Nelson's own experiences, "Will of a Random God" is the story of Bill Bracewell, a successful Atlanta attorney who sees himself as living the good life - a reward, if you will, for his hard work and professional talents. When his son Will is diagnosed with leukemia, however, Bill grows increasingly resentful as this crisis reveals and widens the cracks in his own life and marriage. Together, Bill's family embarks on a heartbreaking, sometimes funny, and ultimately redeeming journey of discovery, as Will teaches them the true meaning and purpose of living in a random, and often frightening, world. Authors' note: Both "Will of a Random God," and the authors' companion novel, "Grace of a Different God" (which similarly is based on author Judith Nelson's real life story of her escape from a reclusive, fundamentalist family), contain adult content and language, and are intended for mature audiences.show more
