Publisher's Summary

The problem of suffering is often raised by those who question the goodness or the power of God. In this book, newly revised and expanded, R.C. Sproul provides biblical answers to the questions all of us ask about suffering and addresses some of the many unbiblical conclusions that are put forth today. In the end, he shows that suffering is not outside the realm of God's providence and his good purposes.

Finally on Audiobook

What made the experience of listening to Surprised by Suffering the most enjoyable?

I've started reading this one but often get too busy to finish. This is a great reminder that the Christian life is not always happy and there is suffering but God continues to be there through it all.

Which character – as performed by George W. Sarris – was your favorite?

I like that he does change his voice more books should be read this way it's helpful when there are stories within the narrative.

Any additional comments?

I think the is one of my favorites. It's not the happy book as the title also indicates but it is a blessing to know that God is sovereign and he is always there through good an bad. And the suffering has a heavenly purpose.
