ZACHARIAS & VITALE: HOPE IN SUFFERING

WHY SUFFERING?

Life on this planet includes suffering. Perhaps you’ve heard or even asked this question: “Why would a loving and powerful God allow so much pain and suffering?”

I recommend an important book, WHY SUFFERING? FINDING  MEANING AND COMFORT WHEN LIFE DOESN’T MAKE SENSE.

Co-authors Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale offer an answer that makes sense even when life’s circumstances that are full of pain and suffering don’t. I believe reading this book will bring hope, comfort, and sense to even hearts that are hurting.

When thinking eternally and one considers the possibility of love, doesn’t one have to consider the reality of freedom? Of the possibility of pain?

This book is “written for the Christian struggling for an answer, the seeker who thinks suffering disproves God’s existence, and the sufferer who needs a glimpse of a loving God.” In other words, it is for all of us. Surely each reader is described here at one time or other!

Whichever description fits you, I believe you will be blessed with comfort, meaning, and hope by reading WHY SUFFERING?

Ravi Zacharias is founder of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, and Vince Vitale teaches at Oxford University. I wholehearted recommend any book either author has written. I am thankful for their ministries that have blessed my life.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)
