Overview

Suffering often seems to catch us by surprise. One day we are healthy, comfortable, and happy. The next we find ourselves ill or injured, struggling, and distraught. The pain that invades our lives may come from our own suffering or that of a loved one. But no matter the source, we didn’t see it coming. All too often, our perplexity prompts us to suspect God of wrongdoing.

This is more than a book of theology or a biblical study. It is an examination of questions that all of us ask about our ultimate destiny. Dr. Sproul offers solid biblical counsel and comfort for those undergoing suffering and for those who minister to the suffering, counsel that helps believers stand in times of trial with faith in a God who is both loving and good. It offers Christian answers while responding to unbiblical conclusions. This book provides a sane, rational, and biblical view among all the confusion surrounding suffering, suicide, euthanasia, and life after death.
