Don Carson's experience as both biblical scholar and pastoral teacher combine here to give us a treatment of suffering under God's sovereignty which is outstandingly accurate, wise and helpful. He covers a wealth of biblical material with carefully reasoned clarity and umbrella-like relevance to help us prepare for whatever life may bring.

The author writes, with Bible in hand, less as a philosopher than as a devout and battered pilgrim. His meditations on suffering and evil and the questions they raise and address are solid study group materials conducive to faith, joy and hope.

All who follow the author's fast flowing argument will find their heads cleared and their hearts strengthened.
