Why is there suffering? When will it end? Where is God in it?
Despite how common suffering is, we still struggle to understand it, and even more to bear through it. Between Pain and Grace gets to the heart of this struggle. Its honest and detailed portrait of life challenges our assumptions about pain, emotion, and God himself.
Born from a popular college course on suffering, this book answers critical questions like:
- Is God personally involved in our pain and suffering?
- How should Christians handle emotions like grief and anger?
- What does the Bible say about issues like mental illness, sexual abuse, and family betrayal?
Striking an elegant balance between being scholarly and pastoral, Between Pain and Grace is useful in the classroom, churches, and for personal reading. The authors draw from Scripture, personal experience, and even psychological research to offer a well-rounded and trustworthy take on suffering.
Between Pain and Grace will give you confidence in God’s sovereignty, comfort in His presence, and wisdom for life this side of paradise. It will also make you more tender and better prepared to respond to the suffering of others. Read it today for a richer, more realistic relationship with God.
