The predictable surprise of Christian suffering
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
If you had to explain to a friend what the Bible says about suffering, what would you say?
Paul Grimmond writes:
"As I began to write this book, I thought I knew pretty much what I was going to say. But the more I read the Bible, trying to find the right passages to make the points I thought I needed to make, the more uneasy I felt."
Come with Paul and discover the surprises he uncovers as he asks some of the most basic questions of the Christian life: Why do we suffer? And what does it mean to suffer—and even die—well?
