Subtitle:

Why Our Sufferings Matter to the Almighty

If God is loving, why is there suffering?

What's the difference between permitting something and ordaining it?

When bad things happen, who's behind them--God or the devil?

When suffering touches our lives, questions like these suddenly demand an answer. From our perspective, suffering doesn't make sense, especially when we believe in a loving and just God.

After more than thirty years in a wheelchair, Joni Eareckson Tada's intimate experience with suffering gives her a special understanding of God's intentions for us in our pain. In When God Weeps, she and lifelong friend Steven Estes probe beyond glib answers that fail us in our time of deepest need. Instead, with firmness and compassion, they reveal a God big enough to understand our suffering, wise enough to allow it---and powerful enough to use it for a greater good than we can ever imagine.

    This book is both a balm for the soul during painful times as well as a tough pill to swallow. The truths of sovereignty and suffering are very well presented in this book. I wrestled and cried through this book a couple years ago and came out more at rest at peace with letting go of some whys and trusting the one who loves me enough to send joy and sorrows in different life seasons. God knows best, I don't need every why answered He is trustworthy and good. This book is in my top ten of life altering reads, I highly recommend it.
