Suffering is an age-old question that has puzzled the
people of God since time began. After all, if our God
is both a loving and an all-powerful being, why does He
allow such pain and suffering in the world?
At the age of eighty-two, legendary Bible scholar Dr.
Herbert Lockyer took on this question. As he watched
his wife of sixty-six years slowly fade from loving spouse
to an incapacitated person who needed his constant care,
it caused him to look upon her afflicted, helpless form,
and ask, O my God, why?
In this outstanding work, Lockyer does not present ideas
on how to cope with suffering but teaches how to pass
through it, removing self-pity and using personal trials as
a springboard to help others. In the midst of his darkest
hour, Lockyer examines the problem of human suffering
in light of God's love and His eternal plan.
