DESCRIPTION

In the last few years, 9/11, a tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and
many other tragedies have shown us that the vision of God in
today's churches in relation to evil and suffering is often
frivolous. Against the overwhelming weight and seriousness of the
Bible, many Christians are choosing to become more shallow, more
entertainment-oriented, and therefore irrelevant in the face of
massive suffering.

 

 

In Suffering and the Sovereignty of God, contributors
John Piper, Joni Eareckson Tada, Steve Saint, Carl Ellis, David
Powlison, Dustin Shramek, and Mark Talbot explore the many
categories of God's sovereignty as evidenced in his Word. They urge
readers to look to Christ, even in suffering, to find the greatest
confidence, deepest comfort, and sweetest fellowship they have ever
known.

 

"John Piper and friends tackle some of the hardest and most
significant issues of Christian concern, producing one of the most
honest, faithful, and helpful volumes ever made available to
thinking Christians. It is filled with pastoral wisdom, theological
conviction, biblical insight, and spiritual counsel. This book
answers one of the greatest needs of our times-to affirm the
sovereignty of God and to ponder the meaning of human suffering. We
need this book."

-R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, The Southern
Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

 

"For all who don't live a charmed life, for all who have given
themselves to the point of exhaustion, for all who have been
betrayed by pious backstabbers, for all who wonder if they can even
go on, Suffering and the Sovereignty of God will be green
pastures and deep, still waters."

-Raymond C. Ortlund, Jr., Senior Pastor, Christ
Presbyterian Church, Nashville, Tennessee

 

"This is not another theological volume that complicates what
appears to be an irreconcilable paradox; it is a book that grows
out of practical experience and applies Scripture to a realistic
world where we all live."

-Jerry Rankin, President, Southern Baptist
International Mission Board

 

"This book will challenge you to believe that God is truly
sovereign, not just in the safe haven of theological inquiry, but
also in the painful messiness of real life. You will be encouraged
to live more consistently by God's grace and for his glory."

-Mark D. Roberts, Senior Pastor, Irvine
Presbyterian Church, Irvine, California
