1 in stockCompare
When you read through the Bible, you can see that God hates suffering. Jesus spent much of his life relieving people’s illnesses and hurts. He calls us to do the same: to feed the hungry, clothe the poor, take care of widows and orphans and visit those in prison. So why doesn’t our all-powerful God get rid of suffering? How can a gracious and loving God allow anyone to suffer? Why do “good” people have to suffer? Don’t they deserve better? What possible good can come through suffering? Joni Eareckson Tada knows about hardship first hand. A diving accident in 1967 left her confined to a wheelchair as a quadriplegic at the age of 17. Joni knows what it’s like to suffer chronic pain. Yet she has found comfort and meaning in the God of the Bible. In this easy-to-read book, she helps you understand why God allows suffering and what we can learn from it. ‘Our human inclination may want to charge God with wrongdoing, but God’s dealings with us are always motivated by love and concern for our souls.’ Joni Eareckson Tada This 48-page book answers tough questions about suffering, hardship, and God’s sovereignty: What is God’s role in our suffering? If God hates suffering, why doesn’t he get rid of it? Why do ‘good’ people suffer? What good can come from suffering? What does the Bible say about God’s sovereignty? Do we ever have to ‘forgive’ God?
