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

This is a short and easy-to-read book on how Christians should respond to suffering. Matt and Beth talk about how they and others have responded at such times and they offer thoughtful and profoundly insightful biblical principles. The handling of the Bible is really excellent and their use of illustrations were really helpful to try and explore some of the mysteries of suffering.

This is a 'heart' book rather than a 'head' book as it deals so sensitively and honestly with the conflicting emotions that people experience, but it's just so wonderfully clear on God's character and how to hold on to what we know at times of difficulty.

Matt and Beth really shone for me as examples of people who have walked difficult paths, and don't belittle people's pain, yet still they are completely passionate about following God. I don't say this lightly, but I found their example inspirational, and really helped me get a good perspective back when my suffering had left me in a complete spiritual wasteland. This is an excellent book to give to anyone who is going through a hard time or experienced done kind of loss.

What a great book. Find out the story behind the song by Matt and Beth Redman.
Go on a journey with them and discover that God is with you in the midst of suffering.

If you have a friend in a sorrowful stage of life, or you need to review how you feel about life, Matt and Beth Redman have written a very easy to read book that travels with you along life's pathway, just as God intended - fellowship and compassion.
