All of us experience suffering; some much more than others. Having a Biblical perspective toward the trials and difficulties of life and responding correctly to them is vitally important. This book does an excellent job teaching how to prepare for the trials to come and how to appropriately respond when they do. Each chapter ends with Bible study questions, which offer an excellent opportunity to dig deep into Scripture, and discussion questions, which make it an ideal tool for small group Bible studies.
