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

Suffering and the Christian Life, Volume 1

By Mark R. Talbot

From the moment Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating from the forbidden tree, suffering has been part of earthly life. Heartache, loneliness, sickness, depression, and death serve as constant reminders of this somber reality. Even Christians, who will know the glory of the life to come, can experience great suffering—sometimes so deep and disruptive that it dominates their consciousness and threatens to overwhelm their faith and hope. In When the Stars Disappear, Mark Talbot encourages readers to digest the lessons of some of the Bible’s great saints who, when faced with similar trials, learned to continue believing and hoping as they realized that God in his steadfast love continued caring for them.
