Suffering and the Love of God
|In Suffering and the Love of God Roger Forster tackles the controversial questions of why bad things happen to good people and how God can allow suffering to happen within his creation.|
Roger Forster takes a fresh and radical look at the book of Job and shows that it is not just a tale of suffering, but a powerful insight into the strength and endurance of God's love for us.
In an increasingly depersonalised and uncertain world we are daily faced with an onslaught of both natural and man-made disasters and it is now more relevant than ever for us to understand and live in the Love of God.
In this book Roger Forster challenges us to try to be more like Job in the ways we relate to God through worship during our suffering and unravels the mystery of where we find God through Christ when we are suffering.
'I warmly recommend this fine exposition of the book of Job and its very practical and down-to-earth day-to-day application. Roger Forster writes with conviction, with clarity, with passion and always with relevance. Theologically sound, exegetically enlightening and well illustrated from Scripture, this book will prove to be particularly helpful in the ministry of pastoral counselling.'
