Reflections on suffering and evil

'My soul is in anguish. How long, O Lord, how long?' (Psalm 6:8)

Personal tragedy and heartache. Accident, illness and infirmity. Drought, earthquake, tsunami. Terrorist atrocities. War, genocide, poverty, famine. All we have to do is live long enough, and we will suffer in one way or another.

In this new edition of an excellent, widely appreciated study, Don Carson addresses the issue of evil and suffering with sensitivity, pastoral concern and biblical insight. He helps Christians prepare for the day when they have to experience a 'frowning providence', and face it with faith and hope because of an unshakable trust in the providence of God.

' a treatment of suffering under God's sovereignty which is outstandingly accurate, wise and helpful. All who follow the author's fast-flowing argument will find their heads cleared and their hearts strengthened.'
J. I. Packer

'The writing is clear, compressed and vigorous; and notes and bibliography provide ample food to satisfy the appetite which the book will surely arouse.'
Paul Ellingworth

'The help, challenge, riches and humble spirituality of the exposition of many biblical themes on suffering make this book outstanding.'
Selwyn Morgan

'This is no book of easy answers Rather, it is a book of biblical perspectives It helps us move nearer God's way of seeing things. That has got to be good.'
Peter Hicks
