pastors we frequently deal with those in our congregations who are
themselves involved in suffering or who are walking along with loved
ones through such trials. A helpful resource for many will be Suffering And The Sovereignty Of God,
edited by John Piper and Justin Taylor (Crossway). The book offers
solid and insightful discussions (by several authors) of issues
relating to human suffering, and includes an interview with Piper –
who has himself dealt with cancer in recent years.
