Item Description...
Suffering. We want to escape it... we dream of escaping it...we seek escape constantly. But suffering is inevitable. It's easy to trust God when he does what seems right. But when we experience or witness human suffering, we chatter to each other, we consult experts, we badger God for answers, and we invent our own answers when he fails to respond. What happens when we can't understand the rules God plays by--or worse, we do understand, but it doesn't seem fair? Is God not good? Is life not worth living? Is our existence futile or pointless? The author has suffered, and he has watched others suffer. In this book, he helps you find God in the circumstances that surround suffering.

Publishers Description
'If God had created a world in which there were no possibilities, what would that world be like? What would our lives be like if there were no potential for pain? Would there be any joy? Achievement? Satisfaction? Love?'--Lawrence WilsonSuffering of any kind is a painful, lonely process. When Christians suffer their first response is to question God and seek some understanding for their pain. In Why Me?, Lawrence Wilson explains that it is not always possible to find easy answers to life's most difficult questions, but it is possible to find good and God in every circumstance, to experience joy alongside pain, and to live a good life in spite of the nagging question, 'Why Me?'

1. The problem of pleasure: And the value of pain
2. A perfect world: The cost of freedom
3. The need to know: Faith beyond reason
4. A question of justice: Mercy, patience and chance
5. The downside up: Learning to embrace pain
6. Just deserts: How we become like God
7. Th needle and the thorn: God's answer to pain
8. What's in your hand? our responsibility for relief
Afterword: To those who suffer

In short, this is a good read for "Christians" in pain and suffering. Well written and organized, supported by good picks of scripture. It helps. Highly recommended! Nevertheless, For those who want to read more of the subject, "Where is God when it hurts? by Philip Yancey" is also an excellent choice.
WOW! Great answers with Scripture to back up author's viewpoint   Dec 30, 2005
I am a grief support group facilitator, and the "Why?" questions are always asked. This is the best book on the subject that I have read. The author explains reasons from a Christian point of view, with great everyday examples, as well as Scripture to support his view. When we suffer, we search for answers as to why we have to suffer. This author goes over the value of pain and encourages us to ask the questions, for in doing so, we often find God. There is just too much in this book to go over briefly. However, if you are suffering either physically or emotionally, and you are asking "Why?" consider reading this book. It is most encouraging.
