Be Still, My Soul
Embracing God'S Purpose And Provision In Suffering
When life becomes difficult - when we face deep disappointment, agonizing loss or ongoing pain - we set out on a search to find answers to significant questions: Why would God allow this to happen? What good could come out of this? What will it look like to trust God? In this collection of insightful essays and excerpts, classic and contemporary theologians and Bible teachers - ranging from John Calvin, Charles Spurgeon and Dietrich Bonhoeffer to Tim Keller, Joni Eareckson Tada and John Piper explore Scripture in regard to the causes and purposes of suffering, as well as what it means to trust God in the midst of hardship and pain. Nancy Guthrie explores the issue of suffering as one who has suffered the loss of two of her children.
sensitively challenges readers to accept that our suffering can be painful, but also continually shifts our gaze to Christ
