Product Description

Few things trouble our hearts and minds like suffering. "Why is this happening? Why me? How can I get through this? Can I get through this?"

God says we can, but he says more. Suffering is not merely to be endured. It comes into our lies for good reasons. Suffering affords seasons for growth in ways we would not grow otherwise.

This book prepares believers for hardship when it comes their way. Learning some of the purposes for suffering, how it connects us with our Lord and his people, and what God's Word says to us in the midst of our pain will enable us to glorify him in the most troubling times.

The wealth of Scripture in this readable book, its focus on the passion and sympathy of Jesus, and thoughtful study questions for reflection or group discussion will help to transform not only our outlook on suffering, but our lives.
