Torn to Heal: Gods Good Purpose in Suffering
2 in stock
God is radically dedicated to our redemption. This is both glorious and terrifying. It is terrifying because we are idolaters, which means that when God brings redemption he also brings a death sentence to our fallen desires. In love, God will do whatever it takes - even ripping us to shreds if necessary - to replace our feeble pleasures with lasting desire for himself.
Sadly, in our culture, two deadly responses to suffering have crept into the Church. These responses, deadly dualism and shallow stoicism, are attempts to hijack God's good purpose in suffering. Torn to Heal is an invitation to embrace God's good purpose in suffering, while urging its readers to reject these deadly enemies.
"Torn to Heal is the most concise, readable, and helpful theology of suffering I've come across. The content, length, and tone is just perfect for those who are in the furnace of affliction screaming 'Why?'"?
