When Bad Things Happen

by: William P Smith
Book Description from Amazon:
Is a personal God really involved in our suffering? And if he is, what in the world is he up to? Why would a good God allow suffering in his world? In CCEFs When Bad Things Happen: Thoughtful Answers to Hard Questions, William P. Smith addresses these and other hard questions by reflecting on what the Bible teaches about suffering. Instead of pat answers, he shares the different ways God uses suffering to bring us into a deeper, more intimate relationship with him. You can learn to see the good that God brings out of suffering and be thankful--not for the suffering itself--but for God and his involvement in your life.
