On the many roads marked with suffering
on 24 November 2005
This book looks at 1 of the biggest questions Christians struggle with. It gives many good personal testimonies of coming through suffering. I am not sure that all suffering is like Job and God given but what is not said enough is that when you don't understand your suffering it is the fact that eternity awaits does not changeand Gods love for you remains. God protects and holds us like the footprints poem says. What the book and the song do though is focus us back to the laments that we sometimes feel guilty about writing as songs or with God. I hope this brings up many more stirring songs about suffering. God does give and take away, but God also is there throughout, even if you have not been given God inspired suffering. What ever your theology is in that area.
Very well written, flows well and the writing style is good quality. A worth while read whether you believe in God or have searching questions that you want to enquire more about
