Trials are part of life on this side of heaven, and God wants to use them for your good! "One of the best biblical treatments of suffering I have seen. You want this book in your library!"--Dr. Carlton McLeod: Speaker, author, and senior pastor
The principles in this book will encourage you during tribulations and give you the Christian grief counseling you need. There are many books on suffering, but not many are grounded in the Bible. Pastor Scott LaPierre discusses Christian suffering so believers receive the biblical inspiration they need.
This book is perfect for Christian grief counseling, and each chapter concludes with questions that help you apply what you are reading. You will learn how to:
Develop the spiritual perspective needed to embrace trials
Appreciate the maturity trials produce
Understand the rewardsÂ--in this life and the next--for enduring trials
Recognize God is still compassionate and gracious even during trials
Persevere through trials that threaten your faith
Your suffering is not meaningless or accidental. God loves you, and He always works in your best interests.
