In the last few years, 9/11, a tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and many other tragedies have shown us that the vision of God in today's churches in relation to evil and suffering is often frivolous.

Stacy Mccann5 Stars Out Of 5May 15, 2008Stacy MccannExcellent and very challenging book that forces you to see God's purposes and grace in suffering, even in the most evil of situations. We used this for a small book study and found it very revealing and comforting. A must read for any Christian as it applies to the trial-laden road we're promised to live for Christ.
