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.'

D A Carson

Dr Don (D. A.) Carson is currently Research Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. His areas of expertise include biblical theology, the historical Jesus, postmodernism, pluralism, Greek grammar, Johannine theology, Pauline theology, and questions of suffering and evil. Carson has written prolifically and profoundly on all these subjects.

Carson has written or edited 57 books - as well as numerous journal articles - ranging from New Testament commentaries to topical studies on the state of the contemporary church and its wider cultural context. His work is characterised by brilliant theological insight, thorough scholarship, and an uncompromising commitment to the essentials of Reformed doctrine.

Carson's landmark book, The Gagging of God: Christianity Confronts Pluralism won the 1997 Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Gold Medallion Award. Other works that examine the interaction of church and culture include The Inclusive Language Debate (1998), Becoming Conversant With the Emerging Church (2005), Christ and Culture Revisited (2008) and The Intolerance of Tolerance (2012).

Carson's exegetical works include volumes on individual New Testament books in the Revised Expositor's Bible Commentary, Pillar New Testament Commentary, Baker Exegetical Commentary, and New International Greek Testament Commentary. In Exegetical Fallacies (1984, 1996, 2nd ed.), Carson is at his incisive best, analysing the root causes of errors in biblical interpretation. He has also notably edited the New Testament Commentary Survey up to its 7th edition (2013), as well as the Zondervan Study Bible (2015).

Donald Arthur Carson was born in Montreal, Canada, in 1946. His undergraduate degree majored in mathematics and chemistry. He went on to undertake a Master of Divinity with a Baptist seminary and earned his PhD in New Testament from Cambridge University in 1975, the same year he married his wife Joy. In 1978, Carson joined the faculty of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, where he has worked ever since. In 2005 with Tim Keller, Carson founded The Gospel Coalition (TGC) - a network of Reformed churches dedicated to engaging and transforming the wider culture through speaking events, online advocacy, and publication. He continues to be an active guest lecturer in church and academic settings around the world.

Carson lives with his family in Liberty, Illinois. In his spare time he enjoys reading, hiking, and woodworking.

Well thought out
4 stars By Life, Sep 06 2016
This book helps readers engage with very real concerns faced by many today - suffering and pain. In his typically masterful way, Carson navigates these sensitive issues with gentleness and truth, like a discussion with a good friend rather than a rote, theological response devoid of heart. I particular liked the chapter "Suffering God", which turned the narrative around to examine what Jesus actually did on the cross for us.
