P & R

 We all experience suffering, some of us more than others.  In fact, if you are a Christian, you've been called to suffer with Christ.  But why do Christians suffer?  Isn't God all-powerful, able to prevent suffering?  Isn't he loving and good, particularly toward his children?  What purpose does suffering serve in my live, or the lives of my loved ones?

"I grow tired of books on suffering which either ignor the real problem or offer cliches as answers to the problem of suffering.  Dan McCartney has done neither.  He looks the 'monster' in the eye and, with Bible in hand, McCartney gives honest answers to honest questions about suffering." - Steve Brown
