Did you know that the number one objection among skeptics and the number one reason for doubt among believers is the problem of suffering? Why did an all-powerful, all-loving God create a world that he knew was destined to fall? What’s in it for him? Why does he let us struggle? Christians and skeptics alike share these concerns. This unique book reveals that there is a point to suffering–and it isn’t about us, our pain, or our confusion. Though they are hard to bear, pain and suffering make sense when we consider what they reveal about God–his mercy, forgiveness, and healing can only be known in an imperfect world. Filling a void in Christian literature, Why a Suffering World Makes Sense encourages readers to let God’s hidden attributes be revealed in their pain, thereby helping them unravel the mystery of who God really is.


From Publishers Weekly:

An evangelical Christian attempts to explain the thorniest question in Christian theology—why evil and suffering exist in a world created and loved by God. Tiegreen (At His Feet) posits that suffering makes sense because it allows God to teach us something. “Sin highlights glory,” he states, pointing to the New Testament story (John 9:2–3) in which Jesus tells the disciples a man was born blind so that God’s works might be displayed. No discussion of theodicy would be complete without mentioning the Holocaust, but Tiegreen’s treatment leaves something to be desired.
