Each month, WaterBrook Multnomah gives readers a sneak peek into an upcoming title. See below for our most recent peek.
Suffering is, in the end, God’s invitation to trust him.
Every one of us will experience suffering. You may be in such a time now. We see the presence of evil in the headlines every day. It all raises questions about God—Why would an all-good and all-powerful God create a world full of evil and suffering? How can there be a God if suffering and evil exist?
Kay Arthur, beloved Bible teacher and co-founder of Precept Ministries, spoke with James and Betty Robison on their television program “Life Today” about her struggle with despair, suicidal thoughts and what she’s learned about the purpose of pain in our lives, as she writes about in her books As Silver Refined and When the Hurt Runs Deep.
Where will you go for help when the hurt runs deep?
Writing out of her own experiences of grief and triumph, Kay Arthur offers you wisdom, compassion, and hope as together you discover how God can use your pain to redeem you, not define you.
- Maybe the question for dark times is not “Why?” Maybe the most productive question to ask is “Who?”
Healing from pain is not about knowing more. It’s not about having better arguments about suffering. It’s about your relationship with God—a relationship that can grow stronger even when every why question goes unanswered.
For those times when we’re wounded by broken trust, assaulted by disease, or victimized by evil—or when we’re crushed to see such things happen to people we love—Randy Alcorn offers something solid to hold onto.
In this specially focused condensation of Alcorn’s If God Is Good…: Faith in the Midst of Suffering and Evil, we’re continually guided into a deeper glimpse of God’s loving ways and higher purposes—the very things we’re often most blinded to whenever we battle pain and anguish.
