Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This exceptional collection of twenty-five short readings drawn from the writings or sermons of classic and contemporary theologians and Bible teachers will encourage anyone seeking to make sense of suffering.

All of us know what it is to suffer, from the loss of a job, the end of a marriage, a chronic disease, or the death of a loved one. We wonder what God could be doing or if he is involved in it at all. We wonder how anything good can come out of it and how to find God in the midst of it. Nancy Guthrie, who has sought to make sense of the suffering she has experienced in the loss of two of her children, has put together this helpful collection of short readings that help to re-shape our perspective about suffering, renew our confidence that God has a good purpose in our suffering, and remind us of God's presence with us in our suffering.

This anthology includes chapters by classic and contemporary theologians and Bible teachers ranging from John Calvin, Charles Spurgeon, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Jonathan Edwards to John Piper, Tim Keller, D. A. Carson, and Joni Eareckson Tada. This collection helps us to leave behind a sentimental or stoic approach to suffering, and embrace solidly scriptural answers to our questions about suffering.

Synopsis:

Since the beginning of humanity, the question of suffering-why it happens and how God works in it-has existed. What are you doing, God? Why is this happening? Where are you? These questions fill our thoughts when we experience deep pain and tragedy. Having lost two young children who suffered from a rare and incurable disease, editor Nancy Guthrie has put together this helpful collection of short readings exploring the question of suffering.

This anthology includes essays from both classic and contemporary theologians, Bible teachers, and missionaries such as John Calvin, Charles Spurgeon, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, John Piper, Corrie ten Boom, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Helen Roseveare. Each entry expounds on a Bible verse, leading readers to see and be comforted by God's perspective, purpose, and provision in suffering.
