"If you are a Christian who is experiencing suffering--or who is weighed down by the suffering of someone you love--then this book is for you. It offers profound, biblical reflections that do not dodge the hard questions or try to minimize the sometimes overpowering reality of pain and loss. When the Stars Disappear is a gift to every Christian who is hoping for a reason to hope." --Timothy Larsen, McManis Professor of Christian Thought, Wheaton College
When suffering overwhelms us, it is easy to despair and even doubt God's goodness. As the clouds of suffering roll in, we can lose sight of everything but our pain. In these moments, when the stars disappear, we must turn to Scripture to find assurance that God can and will carry us through. In this book, Mark Talbot recounts the suffering of some of the Bible's greatest saints. They show us what it means to remain faithful and hopeful through life's darkest times--and thus help us cling to God's sure promise that he will never leave us or forsake us but will be with us and sustain us until the storms subside and the stars reappear.
