Why Do I Suffer?
Share |

Why does God allow suffering? It's a question that, in one form or another rears its ugly head time and again. Whether it comes from someone who has just lost a loved one, been diagnosed with an incurable illness or even just surveyed the plight of the poor in the third world. A few days after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 the question that was being asked around the world was Where was God in this? The question is one that has dogged Christians down the ages. A number of answers have been offered and indeed all world views attempt their own response. John Currid brings Biblical teaching to bear. God does work in suffering, he is not a worried observer unwilling or unable to intervene, rather he has a purpose at work and is in control. As Abraham said "Shall not the Judge of all the Earth do right?" Grasping that truth will help us as we face the future and ensure that when we are next faced with that most tricky of questions we will know where to begin.

This is a great reasource for all Christians! A great encouragement to those who are tired of the general whinning malaise and gross banality of so many other books on this subject. Solid Reformed perpective. Good, yet short expositions on various texts. Lot's of great quotes! I hope to get this into the hands of many of the suffering w/in even the small fellowship of which God has graciously allowed me to be a part. This would be great for Biblical counselors. Praise first to God through Jesus Christ our Lord and thanks to John Currid and others like Him that God is using for His name and glory Anonymous
