"The contributors to this fine volume address the problem of pain and suffering not only with powerful insights from their own personal experiences, but also with clarifying pastoral and theological reflection. When people experience hurt and suffering, when they face the confusion associated with many of life's challenges, they want and need practical as well as scriptural guidance. Such guidance can be found throughout the various chapters in this volume. I am confident that the biblical encouragement found in these pages will be helpful for many." - Dr. David S Dockery, President, Union University, Jackson, Tennessee

"In the early days of my pastoral ministry, I began to learn that there is a hurt in every heart and in every home. While the contributors to this book present many reminders of this tearful reality, they also testify that the grace of God is sufficient to sustain the followers of Jesus in a fallen, broken world." - Dr. Donald S. Whitney
Associate Professor of Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
