When the Stars Disappear: Help and Hope from Stories of Suffering in Scripture

Volume 1

By Mark R. Talbot

Since the fall of creation, suffering has been a part of life on earth. Heartache, loneliness, depression, and death serve as constant reminders of this somber reality. Even Christians, who know the glory of the life to come, face great suffering—sometimes so deep and disruptive that it dominates their consciousness and threatens to overwhelm. In When the Stars Disappear, author Mark Talbot encourages readers to seek solidarity with biblical figures who, when faced with similar trials, placed their hope in the steadfast presence of God through affliction.
