Have you ever wondered... If there is a God of love, why is there all this suffering in the world? That question is often asked; perhaps you ask it yourself sometimes. Some people claim that the problem of suffering prevents them believing in God. Others use the question of suffering as an excuse to hide behind. It helps them ignore God's existence and Christ's claims. This booklet examines what the Bible says about suffering. A related booklet, If only I knew how to find peace in terminal illness, looks at suffering from a more personal and involved position.
