A Biblical Approach to Personal Suffering
By: Walter C. Kaiser
A Grief Observed
by C. S. Lewis (Author), Madeleine L'Engle (Foreword)
Written after his wife's tragic death as a way of surviving the "mad midnight moment," A Grief Observed is C.S. Lewis's honest reflection on the fundamental issues of life, death, and faith in the midst of loss. This work contains his concise, genuine reflections on that period: "Nothing will shake a man -- or at any rate a man like me -- out of his merely verbal thinking and his merely notional beliefs. He has to be knocked silly before he comes to his senses. Only torture will bring out the truth. Only under torture does he discover it himself." This is a beautiful and unflinchingly honest record of how even a stalwart believer can lose all sense of meaning in the universe, and how he can gradually regain his bearings.

Suffering Is Never for Nothing
By: Elisabeth Elliot
Hard times come for all in life, with no real explanation. When we walk

suffering. Her first husband, Jim, was murdered by the Waoroni people in
Ecuador moments after he arrived in hopes of sharing the gospel. Her second
husband was lost to cancer. Yet, it was in her deepest suffering that she
learned the deepest lessons about God.
