Item description for If God Is So Good, Why Do I Hurt So Bad? by David B. Biebel...
Overview When his son died of a rare genetic disorder, David B. Biebel heard the well-meaning advice of his friend and family but still struggled with one question: why? Why did this happen, and why is speaking the truth about pain and suffering so hard? In this powerful book, Biebel leaves behind the typical but ineffective words of comfort and instead offers the unvarnished truth about illness, death, divorce, financial ruin, and more. His Christian perspective, real-life examples, and keen insight will help readers sort through their pain and see the value in their trials. Through it all they'll discover that God is more loving, understanding, and forgiving than they could ever imagine.

A Powerful Book of Ministry May 7, 2001
When our oldest daughter died, my husband bought this book for me. I read it, reread it, and read it some more. Since then, I have bought it for others who also have had a deep pain in their lives. While the title at first seemed (to me) irreverent, the book itself is not. It is a deeply moving book that deals with the struggles a person goes through in times of great loss. The author himself has gone through such a time. I highly recommend this book for such people, family, and friends who wish to understand how to help.
Minus 1 star Mar 12, 2001
I would not recommend this book to anybody. It was a waste of money and a total disappointment for me.
Every human should own this book. May 29, 2000
Because a part of life is pain and suffering, this book is an absolute must. Having been in "christian" environments all of my life, and having seen so very much suffering - both personally and among family and friends, the title of this book intrigued me. From the first paragraph to the last, I could not put the book down. I have read, and re-read the book, and have given it to so many friends, this book is a wonderful book, and makes God seem so real to the hurting soul. THE BEST AND SO VERY WONDERFUL!
If you or someone you love is hurting, get this book! Oct 8, 1998
David Biebel's keen insight and experience in human suffering makes this book a must read. Written from a Christian perspective, the material contained in these pages will help you make sense of pain and suffering, while providing hope for your situation. Simply put, this is a great book that I would recommend to anyone going through a difficult time in life.
Fantastic! A must-have! Real life situations and solutions! Jul 14, 1996
Since reading this book, I have purchased every copy I couldget my hands on to give away to those who are suffering orneed help. Biebel puts God right by your side. Numerous real life examples allow almost anyone to relate to the pain and emotions so many now deny themselves access to. Immediately, Biebel shelves the "advice", "one-liners", "religious answers" and goes for the guts. Has given many silently suffering wanderers the map and compass to find their way through life's pain. Turns pain into meaningful journey and stepping stone to healthy relationships with God and others.
