Recommends it for: Christians
An amazing book, first published in 1977, which addresses the most vexing issue of modern Christians, “Why do good people suffer?” Billheimer’s answer, simply, is that "suffering is inherent in God's economy." That’s how people grow spiritually. Not seeking the easy path. Not awards or riches, but perseverance through sorrow and suffering grows character. "There is no such thing as a saint who has not suffered." "All life is intended to be a pathway to God," Alexander Maclaren.

Been a long time since I read this little jewel, but the fact a quote from it popped in my head today is a testament to its value. A different take on trouble and suffering in one's life.
Ben Andrews
The one great contribution that this book makes is in reminding all believers that suffering and adversity have a purpose in the Christian life. It offers meaning in the face of tragedy, persecution, and trials.
