Trusting God Even When Life Hurts

In Trusting God Even When Life Hurts, Jerry Bridges addresses questions about suffering in the life of Christians. A personal time of study and prayer evolved into this book on the sovereignty of God. Can we trust Him? Why does God allow suffering? Does He love us?

It has been my experience that books on suffering are best read when one is not suffering. I started this during a difficult time in my life and had to lay it aside until I was through that time. When I picked it up again, I found it to be helpful in understanding some of what I experienced. I liked the fact that there were many Scripture references and quotes from other Christians. The last two chapters on God's love were important to grasping the previous chapters and leaves us understanding why we can trust God. I would recommend this book if you're looking to read on the topic of suffering, hard times, and difficult situations.

Trusting God Even When Life Hurts is written by Jerry Bridges and published by NavPress. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher.
