Endorsements: "[A] sober, encouraging book. . . . The two sides of the author, the biblical scholar who reads, thinks, and misses no detail and the pastoral teacher who understands people, feels with them, and cares for them, combine here to give us a treatment of suffering under God's sovereignty which is outstandingly accurate, wise, and helpful. All who follow the author's fast-flowing argument will find their heads cleared and their hearts strengthened."--J. I. Packer, Regent College

"Covers a wealth of biblical material with carefully reasoned clarity and umbrella-like relevance to help us prepare for whatever difficulties life may bring. This volume represents important and profoundly useful reading for pastors and counselors and for every Christian willing to think about life as it really happens."--Larry J. Crabb, New Way Ministries

"The author writes, with Bible in hand, less as philosopher than as a devout and battered pilgrim. His meditations on suffering and evil and the questions they raise and address are solid study-group materials conducive to faith, joy, and hope."--Carl F. H. Henry, founding editor of Christianity Today

Reviews: "A straightforward, tough-minded, pastorally motivated treatment of the problem of evil. Carson writes not as a philosopher trying to give an account of evil to skeptics but as a biblical scholar addressing fellow believers who struggle with the challenge evil poses for their faith."--Jerry L. Walls, Asbury Theological Journal

"The best compliment I can pay to Carson's book is that I have used it in a college seminar on the problem of evil and that I would do so again. My students seemed especially to benefit from it. Carson covers many if not most biblical themes related to the topic, and therein lies the secret to appreciating his book. . . . It is truly a fine model of excellent scholarship used in the service of the Church."--Daniel B. Clendenin, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society

"The writing is clear, compressed, and vigorous; and notes and bibliography provide ample food to satisfy the appetite which the book will surely arouse."--Paul Ellingworth, Evangelical Quarterly

"No one will deny that this book addresses a real point of tension in every person's life and [that] the author has addressed himself to the issue with great sensitivity, pastoral concern and biblical insight. It is a most edifying book which will help Christians prepare for the day when they have to experience a 'frowning providence' and can face that with faith and hope because of an unshakable trust in the providence of God."--Vox Reformata

"Carson's writings always demonstrate a fine ability to synthesize a wide range of material and present it in a digestible form. This book is no exception. . . . This book deserves wide readership. It will help prepare the thoughtful reader for whatever mysteries of suffering may lie ahead. Discussion questions at the conclusion of each chapter should make this a profitable tool for Sunday School classes, home Bible studies, or personal reflection."--David G. Dunbar, Biblical Interpretation

"With a pastor's heart and an understanding of suffering born both of experience and an expert's engagement with the biblical text, Don Carson tackles in this courageous volume the thorny problem of evil."--Covenant Seminary Review

"This book will help pastors and others think through issues related to human suffering and so help them to be better consolers of those who suffer."--Roy B. Zuck, Bibliotheca Sacra
