No stranger to personal pain and tragedy, Dr. Robert Wise has seen miracles happen in his own life, in the lives of his family members, in the lives of others. Yet he is keenly aware of the times God is silent, the times when pain and tragedy seemingly go unanswered and unexplained. In a day when miracles are being considered almost commonplace by some and when many people suffer feelings of guilt because their prayers are not being miraculously answered, Dr. Wise has written a clear and comforting word to help any believer walk by faith through trouble or trauma. Here is a book that grapples realistically and hopefully with the unanswerable myusteries and questions that face us all.

"Dr. Robert Wise is a personal friend and colleague whom I have gone to many times throughout my life for answers to the tough questions we all face in life. I am a psychiatrist and hear these questions very frequently. . . . In When There Is No Miracle: Finding Hope in Pain and Suffering, Wise tackles one of the toughest questions that we all struggle with. He gives excellent insights for dealing with suffering, pain, and even death in a way that will enable readers to recover more quickly from these difficult times as well as build a foundation that prepares us for whatever the future may hold. I recommend this book highly." (Paul Meier, MD, Author, psychiatrist, & founder of the national chain of nonprofit Meier Clinics 2016-08-03)
"During the past three or four years, I have participated in many healing services, read many books on the subject, and yet ‘there was no miracle.’ The thorough way in which Robert Wise has anticipated the questions facing a person with no miracle has touched me deeply. In every chapter there is fresh strength to see God’s long-range viewpoint instead of my short-sighted one." (Rosalind Rinker, author of Prayer: Conversing with God 2016-08-03)
"Robert Wise, in his exceptional book When There Is No Miracle: Finding Hope In Pain and Suffering, invites us to join with him as he receives and dispenses the godly wisdom obtained through years of counseling the victims of grief. And, as he so eloquently puts it, 'sooner or later, tragedy will march into your own living room.' It has taken Archbishop Wise thirty years, as a social worker and then a pastor, to write and then rewrite this extraordinarily helpful, positive, and inspirational book. When There Is No Miracle catalogs a lifetime of stories of grief and tragedy in those around him and in his own incredible life, peppered with his numerous personal, intimate conversations with Jesus. The book positively guides you through the exasperation and disappointment of a prayer not answered or the miracle not received. With transparency and compassion, Wise delivers numerous illustrations of God’s incredible timing along with His grace, His mercy, and the unbelievable healing power of His love." (S. Bryan Hickox, Emmy-winning television producer 2016-08-03)
"The title of this book should be the footprint for a well-lived life. As faithful as you can be, as steadfast as you go through life, as hopeful as you remain, the hardest thing to live through is being left behind. This book should be recommended reading for understanding that an unanswered prayer doesn't mean that God doesn't love you. It is because you prayed for something that wasn't meant to be." (Sharon Sala, New York Times best-selling author 2016-08-03)
