Whether it's a devastating natural disaster half a world away, or a tragic accident involving a beloved family member, we all face troubles, trials, and tragedies every day. How will we respond? When terrorists strike or storms hit or relationships break down, we all search for the same answers: why? Where is God in all of this? Is God really in control?

Best-selling author Jerry Bridges, one of the most trusted Christian writers of our time, helps you wrestle with these questions in the clear light of the scriptures. As a result, you can learn to understand and trust God's wisdom, love, and sovereignty in the midst of the little disappointments and the big tragedies. And you can experience comfort and hope by exploring the greater purposes of an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving God.

Few modern writers are able to make biblical truth more understandable than Jerry Bridges. And few biblical truths are more vital to understand for the Christian life than those covered in this outstanding book. I know of no better introduction to the topics of sovereignty and suffering.

—C. J. Mahaney, President, Sovereign Grace Ministries
