For years 9 and 10. If I Were God, I'd End All The Pain is John Dickson's attempt at a sensitive and Biblically informed treatment of the problem of suffering. If God loves me, why does He allow me to feel lonely, hurt or afraid? There are no easy answers to the question of suffering and we are not served by glib responses to very real and troubling issues.
^The If I Were God, I'd End All The Pain student handbook is well suited for Christian Studies classes and other contexts where the important issue of suffering must come up. The six studies on Job and the cross are designed to complement the corresponding chapter of John Dickson's book.
^^"I have found this to be a particularly valuable resource and we will continue to use it. The majority of students found the material to be thought provoking and I have had very positive responses from my colleagues"
- Phillip Harmer, Knox Grammar School.
