Walking with God through Pain and Suffering

Book: Keller, Timothy. Walking with God through Pain and Suffering. Penguin Books, 2013.

Point: Christianity has the unique answer to meaningful suffering because Christianity is about Christ, the suffering yet conquering King.

Path: This book is divided into three parts, Worldview, Theological, and Practical. All are well articulated and helpful. 

Sources: Keller’s standard bibliography ranging from contemporary theologians and philosophers to ancient sources.

Agreement: This is the first book I would hand to someone dealing with, or walking alongside someone in the midst of suffering.

Personal App: Suffering is an incredible opportunity to see my inadequacy and God’s sufficiency.

“God allows evil just enough space so it will defeat itself.” (Keller)
