Whether we're dealing with suffering, temptation, sin, grief or persecution, it's easy to feel alone in our troubles. But the reality is that everyone experiences trouble at some point, and we have a Father in heaven who promises to always be with us.
In this honest and encouraging book, Phil Ryken offers hope and practical examples from his own life, the lives of major characters from the Bible, and Jesus Himself to show us that we're never alone in our pain. Though suffering is normal and affliction is to be expected, Christians can put their hope in God - our very present help in times of trouble.
"Written by a sufferer who is also a skilled theologian-exegete, this book is honest, tender, full of grace, and bursting with the street-level wisdom of God's Word. With story after story from Scripture, Dr. Ryken shows how the Bible accurately portrays our sufferings and how God meets us in the midst of them."?
