Item Description...
Overview
Joy and pain are both aspects of the call of God for the Christian. The Bible even presents pain as a trigger for joy. The Call to Joy and Pain explores how this is so, showing the connection between rejoicing and suffering, how suffering draws us nearer to God, and how suffering makes us more effective in service. Ministerial veteran Ajith Fernando combines biblical exposition, keen pastoral insight, and cross-cultural wisdom in his writing. He opens readers' eyes to a truth they may already suspect: we in the West have much to learn about suffering. By examining Paul's words on the subject of suffering for Christ from Colossians 1:24-29, Fernando thoughtfully explains how suffering can be a blessing to the individual Christian and to the church as a whole. His book will help Christians joyfully embrace the life of service and total devotion to Jesus, despite the pain it entails.

The Call to Joy and Pain: Embracing Suffering in Your Ministry  Jul 29, 2008
Did you ever ask a question wondering why a loving God allows so many seemingly bad things to happen to us? The title of this book made me curious about how we could embrace suffering. All of us at one time
or another, usually during a troubled time in our lives, have asked that question.
This book proves that there is a wise God in control of all things, who knows the end from the begining. This book gives valuable insight into many of the questions we all have. It is a life changing insight. The Scripture tells us that Jesus willingly suffered on the cross for the joy that was set before Him.
I recommend this book to help you understand what and why that joy was in the midst of the suffering of the Savior. The book is an easy read and very well done. Do yourself a lot of good and order the book now.
 
An outstanding book  Apr 6, 2008
The Call to Joy and Pain: Embracing Suffering in Your Ministry
This is perhaps the best book that Fernando has done yet. I would reccommend it to every Christian who is serious about his or her faith. It deals with the most important aspects of our lives, yet it is an area often overlooked by the church today.
 
A Joy to Read!  Nov 23, 2007
Ajith Fernando provides us with a solid theology of suffering and pain. But this is no stuffy theology tome. It is written in an easy to read format and backed by a life full of suffering and ministering to the suffering. Thus Fernando is uniquely qualified to speak into our lives at the point of our greatest pain. I am grateful for this book and its timeliness in my life. I think you will be as well.
