Suffering: Gospel Hope When Life Doesn't Make Sense
Sometimes life just hurts.
Out of nowhere, death, illness, unemployment, or a difficult relationship can change our lives and challenge everything we thought we knew—leaving us feeling unable to cope. But, in the midst if all this pain and confusion, we are not alone.
Weaving together his personal story, pastoral ministry experience, and biblical insights, best-selling author Paul David Tripp helps us trust God in the midst of suffering. He identifies traps to avoid in our suffering and points us instead to comforts to embrace. This raw yet hope-filled book will help you cling to God's promises when trials come and move forward with the hope of the gospel.
“Writing after the shock of unexpectedly losing his own health and dealing with ongoing suffering, Paul Tripp offers very practical advice. In particular, his reflections on common ‘traps’ often faced by people who suffer will prove helpful to many who find themselves being tossed about by the storms of life.”

“Dealing daily with quadriplegia and chronic pain (and having battled stage III cancer), I know something about suffering—and to be honest, there’s hardly a book on the subject I haven’t read. But when Paul David Tripp offers his insights on our afflictions, that gets my attention. And this book does not disappoint. Yes, Paul offers an empathetic ear and solid comfort, but he fills these pages with practical, no-nonsense counsel on how to move through and beyond suffering into a fresh and lively hope. I highly recommend this remarkable new work.”
