Item description for Our Ultimate Refuge: Job and the Problem of Suffering by Oswald Chambers...

Where do you turn to for refuge in times of adversity? Chambers, in an honest look at the book of Job, tackles the age-old question, "Why do the righteous suffer?" His insights into the problem of pain will bring hope and encouragement in the midst of hurt and suffering as you discover the positive effects that pain can produce. This thoughtful study also shows how not to deal with those who are suffering. Formerly titled Baffled to Fight Better; updated for language.

Publishers Description
Pain and suffering can bring a new understanding of God's majesty, goodness, and plan for us. While few will ever suffer to the extreme that Job did, his character and his dealings with God can bring light to our own pain and to the suffering of others. This thoughtful study of the book of Job explains the positive effects pain can produce in our lives. It also show us how not to deal with those who are suffering. With characteristic insight, Chambers discusses and reveals the inadequacy of our myths of self-sufficiency and eternal optimism.
