Book Review - Suffering Well

About the Book
If you had to explain to a friend what the Bible says about suffering, what would you say?

Paul Grimmond writes:

"As I began to write this book, I thought I knew pretty much what I was going to say. But the more I read the Bible, trying to find the right passages to make the points I thought I needed to make, the more uneasy I felt."

Come with Paul and discover the surprises he uncovers as he asks some of the most basic questions of the Christian life: Why do we suffer? And what does it mean to suffer—and even die—well?

This book is part of our Guidebooks for Life series. Like other titles in the series, it covers an important issue of the Christian life in an accessible and straightforward way.

About the Author
Paul Grimmond is a gifted and well-known Bible teacher, currently serving on the campus of the University of New South Wales. He is the author of Right Side Up, a book about the Christian life, and co-author with Phillip Jensen of The Archer and the Arrow, a book about preaching. Paul lives with his wife, Cathy, and their three children in Sydney’s east.

My Take on the Book
This was a powerful book that makes you think had and long about how and why we choose to suffer the way we do. This book does a great job at opening your eyes to what the Bible saying that we should be doing, and examining what the Bible feels is appropriate in regards to suffering. The book asked some great questions about why we make decisions that we do and enables the reader to be able to not only better understand what the Bible teaches but also better understand themselves. This was a well-written book that will help anyone with better understanding what they are reading in teachings of the Bible in regards to suffering.
