Recommended: Walking with God through Pain and Suffering

Walking with God through Pain and Suffering
Author:Timothy Keller
Paperback:255 pages
Publisher:PVM Harvest (2013)

Acclaimed writer and pastor Timothy Keller grapples with the age-old question: how do we deal with pain and suffering, both in our own lives and in the world around us!

The problem of suffering is for many the greatest obstacle to trusting in a good and loving God, raising the most difficult, and important, questions of our lives.

If God is love, why is there so much pain in the world?

How do we face suffering - both our own and others' with wisdom and compassion?

How do we continue to trust in a good God when faced with the deepest pain?

In his fullest and most passionately argued book since 2008's bestseller The Reason for God, New York pastor and church planter Tim Keller brings his authoritative teaching, sensitivity to contemporary culture and pastoral heart to these pressing questions, avoiding platitudes and easy answers, and instead giving guidance, encouragement and inspiration.

Walking with God through Pain and Suffering may be the most comprehensive contemporary book on the subject. And for me, that’s saying something. The book is incredibly well researched, yet it is impossibly personal. Keller has a way of taking the walking wounded by the hand and gently placing it in the Savior’s.
— Joni Eareckson Tada for The Gospel Coalition

I can’t think of a better resource for understanding suffering, enduring it with hope, and helping others whose suffering runs too deep for any word except the Word.
— Gerald L. Sittser for Christianity Today

This insightful book offers hard-earned advice on how to accept and ultimately transcend the pain... A luminous and ultimately hopeful examination of the many aspects of suffering.
— Elizabeth George, Booklist
