Item Description...
It is perhaps the most-asked question in any time period: "Why does God allow suffering?" Certainly, every human experiences pain and rejection. If the difficulty is long-term, one can almost be driven mad with grief or anger. We want to know why. Physical and emotional problems are so draining, we become obsessed with "fairness." How do we reconcile our concept of a powerful, loving God with the fact of child death? Or greed? Divorce? Often, we don't. That is exactly where Joel Freeman finds many of the people he counsels. Rather than giving pat answers, he relies on spiritual tools to deal with pain. It's a method that has worked remarkably well, and one that can indeed help you or a loved one through a personal valley.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Little book packed with big helps  Nov 1, 2007
I am going through treatment for cancer and if one more person gave me some syrupy sweet, overly illustrated, overly Job (cough,cough Max Lucado) book candy coating the message "shut-up-and-put-up-God-can-do-what-He-wants-so-you-have-no-right-to-feel-anger-or-grief-or-confusion" I was going to go insane.

Then I stumbled on this book in the teen Sunday School class and it blew me away. It's small but packs a powerful message that helps answer questions but also helps you learn to deal with problems.

I've bought a few of these to pass around chemo. I could have done without some of the cutesies, i.e., "King Jimmy" but it's easily overlooked.
One of the absolute best, and I've read most of them  Aug 16, 2002
In the midst of a very terrible time in my life, I stumbled across this book. It blew me away. I have read many, many books on suffering and dealing with life's tragedies. This one is different in that it does not simply regurgitate the standard pat answers to why suffering exists and what to do when it happens ("Trials are actually a blessing! They'll make you a better person! Embrace them!" -- Give me a break.). Joel Freeman avoids preachy, sanctimonious language and never gets condescending. He gives you practical strategies for dealing with not only suffering and grief but the accompanying feelings of unfairness and "God's absence" that go along with these. My faith in God was strenghthened by my having read this book.
Sometimes life isn't fair, but we expect it to be...why else would we be so angry and hurt when it isn't. We wonder:

* If God is a God of love, why is there so much suffering in the world?
* Why do the wicked seem to prosper?
* Why do terrible things seem to happen to nice people?
* Why does life have to hurt so much?
* Isn't there an easier way to grow?
* Can any meaning be found in suffering?

Endorsed by the likes of Joni Eareckson Tada, Billy Graham, Paul Meier and others, When Life Isn't Fair: Making Sense Out of Suffering (Hardcover, 144 pages) presents helpful insight, poignant stories and touches of humor in revealing a biblical perspective on these questions. Written in a highly readable and thought-provoking style, author Joel A. Freeman, Ph.D. encourages readers to seek a greater understanding of their feelings through personal reflection. He also prompts discussion about their expectations of themselves, others and God.

Published by New leaf Press as part of the Trusting the Master series, Dr. Freeman's newly revised and reprinted book contains Bible verses that speak to specific situations. Drawing on his years of experience in counseling people through their grief and suffering, Dr. Freeman provides a framework upon which can be found true, lasting peace and security.

As a State of Maryland Board Certified Professional Counselor, Joel A. Freeman, Ph.D. holds a Master of Science degree in counseling from Loyola College (Baltimore) and also a Ph.D. in the same discipline. He served as mentor/chaplain for the NBA Washington Wizards for 19 years ('79-'98). As president of The Freeman Institute™, Dr. Freeman conducts team building/leadership/diversity/change management initiatives for leaders of other nations, government agencies, corporations and faith-based organizations. Joel and his family reside in Maryland.
