Item description for Why Me?: Straight Talk about Suffering: Lessons for Faith Communities [With Book] by Lawrence W. Wilson...

Overview
Part of the In Sight Media Series. Suffering is a painful, lonely process. We want to escape it we try to escape it. But suffering is inevitable-even for Christians. It's easy to trust God when He answers our prayers the way we ask Him to or when our lives are happy and content. But when we experience or witness human suffering, it throw us off our guard. We consult experts, we cry out to God for answers, and often, we invent ideas and explanations when He fails to respond.

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?"

In these engaging video lessons, Lawrence Wilson shares his powerful life story and how he has found joy in spite of a life of suffering. With honesty and insight he confronts the frustration that comes and questions that many ask, such as, "Why has God allowed this to happen?" "How can this be fair?" "Is God really good?" "Am I important to Him at all?" He inspires viewers to see through their suffering and pain to find the abundant life that Christ has given them.

This resource includes a copy of the book, Why Me?: Straight Talk About Suffering, and a DVD containing six, 10 minute video lessons that correspond to the book's various chapters. This combo package, part of the In Sight Media Series, is a great resource for adult Sunday School classes, small-group discussions, and sermon enhancement.

Reviews - What do customers think about Why Me?, DVD + Book: Lessons for Faith Communities (Insight Media Series)?

A must read for Christians, no matter whether you are suffering or not  Aug 9, 2007
As there is no table of content here on this site, I would like to take the priviledge to type one for you here.

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.
