Product Description

When tragedy strikes-the death of a child, hurricanes, a school shooting-we begin looking for an escape from the pain, a way out, or we clamor for answers from a panel of religious "experts" to explain the ever-present question, "Why?" We want answers and we want to believe that our suffering isn't meaningless.

A Christian's Pocket Guide to Suffering seeks to simply, but clearly, present a biblical view of suffering so that your feet might land on the solid foundation of God's Word and the God of that Word and, there, find understanding and hope. All other ground is sinking sand.

Table of Contents:

  1. Where Does Suffering Come From?
  2. Suffering and the Sovereignty of God
  3. Why Does God Ordain Suffering?
  4. How to Rightly Respond During Suffering
  5. Finding Hope in the Midst of Suffering
  6. Ministering to Sufferers
