Item description for The Consolations of Theology by Brian Rosner...

Overview
Inspired by Alain de Botton's bestselling Consolations of Philosophy, this volume shows how theology can be of practical value to every believer. The great theologians in the history of the church have always found that theology affords genuine comfort in the face of life's difficulties. In The Consolations of Theology Brian Rosner and other practical theologians present a compelling blend of biography and theology that profoundly addresses the perennial human problems of anger, obsession, despair, anxiety, disappointment, and pain.
