9780802405982: Everything Happens for a Reason?: God's Purposes in a World Gone Bad

Everyone struggles to find explanations for their suffering. Dr. Paul Enns answers several tough, critical questions that all revolve around this central quandary of "why." Why does God allow suffering? Is suffering the result of judgment for sin? Are there even explanations for the terrors and trials we face?

Dr. Enns brings answers from Scripture and from his experience as a professor and pastor, and a wounded one at that. More than anything, he brings comfort and clarity to people who are desperate for it.

Review:

Suffering? Who has not experienced suffering in some way?  The loss of a loved one. The loss of health. The loss of possessions. No one is exempt from some form of malady or pain. No wonder then that we ask if things happen for a reason or if things occur only by happenstance. Enns addresses this issue in a most thorough way. If we suffer, how can God be sovereign? Or if God is loving, why doesn’t He do something about our problems? This book will be a source of great comfort for anyone who asks, “Does everything happen for a reason?”

Dr. Roy B. Zuck, Senior Professor Emeritus of Bible Exposition at Dallas Theological Seminary, and editor, Bibliotheca Sacra
