I’m about to order this book. My ministry continues to put me in the path of people who are going through pain and suffering. I’m always looking for helpful resources.
“This is a dark world. There are many ways we keep that darkness at bay, but we cannot do it forever. Eventually the lights of our lives—love, health, home, work—will begin to go out. And when that happens, we will need something more than our own understanding, competence, and power can give us.”
The question of why God would allow pain and suffering in the world has vexed believers and nonbelievers forever. Timothy Keller, whose books have sold millions of copies to both religious and secular readers, takes on this enduring issue and shows that there is meaning and reason behind pain and suffering, making a forceful and groundbreaking case that this essential part of the human experience can truly be overcome only by understanding our relationship with God.
