Item Description...
Why does God allow suffering? It's a question that, in one form or another rears its ugly head time and again. Whether it comes from someone who has just lost a loved one, been diagnosed with an incurable illness or even just surveyed the plight of the poor in the third world. A few days after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 the question that was being asked around the world was Where was God in this? The question is one that has dogged Christians down the ages. A number of answers have been offered and indeed all worldviews attempt their own response. John Currid brings Biblical teaching to bear. God does work in suffering, he is not a worried observer unwilling or unable to intervene, rather he has a purpose at work and is in control. As Abraham said "Shall not the Judge of all the Earth do right?" Grasping that truth will help us as we face the future and ensure that when we are next faced with that most tricky of questions we will know where to begin.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Concise, reformed treatment  May 28, 2009
While it might appear odd at first glance that a scholar of the Old Testament and Semitics would be asked to write a book on suffering, a more thoughtful considerations shows the wisdom of such a choice.

Currid combines a quality selection of creeds, confessions, hymns, anecdotes to accentuate his conscise, reformed treatment of the problem of suffering and the Biblical texts that speak to it.

The chapter divisions are systematically arranged and do justice to conservative and consistent Reformed dogmatics. God is Sovereign, His character is just, and His Eternal Covenant organizes our understanding of His relationship to humanity.

Currid also does a good job with the varieties of suffering and its meaning for the believer and unbeliever (an important distinction missing from most traditional and philosophical treatments of the problem of suffering and evil).

The only regret I have is that Currid's brief expositions of Ecclesiastes left me wanting more from him on that book.

While this book does not provide anything profound that cannot be found elsewhere, it combines excellent doctrines into one, concise, and easy-to-read treatment that is of benefit to pastors, elders, and lay readers alike.
