This book arises out of the conviction of the author that if Christian faith is worth considering, it needs to be deep enough to cope with our most rigorous human scrutiny and our most heart-rending questions. Amy Orr Ewing is not afraid to address the why questions and that of suffering and pain is the hardest of all for any of us. With a sympathetic heart and a probing, honest mind, she helps the reader think through a wide range of causes of our pain and grief: anger, grief, illness of body and mind, violence, natural disasters and systemic suffering. As she walks us through the vale of our tears she introduces us to the incomparable grace of the Good Shepherd who himself suffered and gave his life for the sheep. A book to be read and shared – especially in this time of global pain.
