Since the beginning of humanity, the question of suffering-why it happens and how God works in it-has existed.
What are you doing, God? Why is this happening? Where are you? These questions fill our thoughts when we experience deep pain and tragedy. Having lost two young children who suffered from a rare and incurable disease, editor Nancy Guthrie has put together this helpful collection of short readings exploring the question of suffering.
^^This anthology includes essays from both classic and contemporary theologians, Bible teachers, and missionaries such as John Calvin, Charles Spurgeon, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, John Piper, Corrie ten Boom, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Helen Roseveare. Each entry expounds on a Bible verse, leading readers to see and be comforted by God's perspective, purpose, and provision in suffering.^
When life becomes difficult--when we face deep disappointment, agonizing loss, or on-going 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 him? 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, John Piper, and D. A. Carson--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.

Those who have watched Nancy and David Guthrie walk through the loss of two infant children, and the millions who have read their story worldwide in TIME Magazine and USA Today, have wondered at their ability to emerge from such sorrow with joy for life and passion for God. In reality, this deep place of pain caused Nancy to dig into the scriptures like she never had before, looking for answers to her questions and a deeper relationship to God.
She offered many of the lessons she learned from this sorrowful experience in her 2002 book, Holding On to Hope: A Pathway of Suffering to the Heart of God (Tyndale House Publishers) which has helped thousands of people pursue God in the midst of their suffering. She regularly hears from readers book from all around the world who have been touched by the as the book as it has been translated into numerous languages including Spanish, Portuguese, German, Danish, Norwegian, Korean and Chinese.
Nancy has also written The One Year Book of Hope (also Tyndale), a daily devotional for people who are hurting or grieving, When Your Family's Lost a Loved One (with her husband, David), Hoping for Something Better (a study of the book of Hebrews) and Hearing Jesus Speak Into Your Sorrow.
The Guthries have seen God continue to use their loss to minister to other people going through loss in a variety of ways, including serving as co-hosts for a new production of the GriefShare video series. GriefShare is a 13-week video curriculum series that is used to facilitate weekly grief groups in more than 6,000 churches nationwide
