Recommended for: people who want an honest Christian answer to the question of suffering

"God permits what He hates, to achieve what He loves"

I really liked this book that Tada and Estes wrote about the theology of suffering and questions when people are in pain.

God is still good even though He allows people to suffer in horrendous ways.

The theology is good, the stories are real; this is no frivolous-pat-answer Christian bandage to the hard realities of suffering.

This book also gives me more of a solid Christian perspective when I am working within the disability community.

Read it if you can be honest about your fears and doubts about God's love in spite of suffering.
