Situating Christian Suffering within the Bible’s Redemptive Storyline

Since creation’s fall, suffering has been part of earthly life. Accidents, illness, loneliness, depression, grief, and death serve as constant reminders of this tragic reality. Christians can face great suffering, which can be so deep and disruptive that it dominates their consciousness and threatens to overwhelm them. In the Suffering and the Christian Life series, Mark Talbot provides help and hope from Scripture for those who are suffering.

In volume 2 of this series, Talbot explores Scripture’s account of the origin, spread, and eventual end of suffering, giving Christians the perspective they need to get through life’s difficult moments. He encourages readers to see themselves within the Bible’s storyline (creation, rebellion, redemption, and consummation), finding the courage to endure and taking comfort that God is at work for their good.
