"Right from the first page this book is easy reading, yet it deals with the most difficult subject Christians ever have to face - the question of why a loving God allows suffering. A wonderful antidote to self-pity, I can highly recommend this book to anyone, but particularly to those who struggle to know what to say or how to help when their friends are going through the mill." (Jennifer Rees Larcombe, Christian Herald)
"...not only an apologetic and a pastoral help but also puts the reader into immediate contact with Job and the Psalmists as they struggle with the issues for real. The book is a deceptively easy read, written in an everyday style with biblical and contemporary illustrations. It is well worth a read." (Evangelicals Now)

Melvin Tinker provides answers to these questions. He explores the cases of different characters from the Bible, such as Job. He also examines what Jesus Christ said, and looks at the example of the early Christians and goes on to give an explanation for the reasons for and the benefits of suffering. He writes in a very readable style, using some very powerful illustrations, and handles the subject in a very sensitive fashion. Here is a book, which I can recommend. It contains some timely teachings for the Christian church today.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People is one of the best explanations of the goodness of God no matter what the circumstances may seem like to us. This small book contains volumes of wisdom that will transform the perspective of people who are willing to take an honest look at how they perceive the lessons that life has to offer.
The book is both eloquent and readable, and it contains some rare but very useful insights into Job that I have personally found very helpful. I intend to get an extra copy to give to one of my relatives.
