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.
