What Do I Do when the Pain Will Not Stop? Apr 13, 2007
Dr. James Halla has written a deep and thoughtful book, Pain: The Plight of Fallen Man: God's Prescription for Persevering. This is less a theological treatise of where pain originated than it is a working structure by which one can learn to cope with pain, illness, and even disappointment.
Relying fully on God's Word, Dr. Halla exposes the truth that most of us are going to become ill and pain riddled. What do we do when that happens? We are to turn again and ask, "How can I best serve God in this condition?" God is our all. He is our reason for living. So what then does God do with us when we become enveloped in pain, and how is that He expects to use in such a state? This book aims to address each of these key points.
Specifically designed to be read by those presently immersed in pain, this book is likely to help many suffering Christians.
