Bringing Forth Jesus, the Christ

The Beginning and End of Birth Pains
  • By John a. Porter
$13.79

Product Description

Have you struggled with making

sense of suffering--whether in your

own life, in the history of God's

people, or just in the world around

you? What if you could come to

see it as pain that is intended to

be productive of new life? That is

precisely what the writer argues in

this study of the biblical perspective

on suffering. The pains of childbirth

are a pervasive and undeniably

significant motif in the Scriptures, beginning in the Garden of Eden with

their imposition on Eve for her role in the Fall and continuing to John the

Divine's heavenly vision of the woman, robed with the sun, ... in labor and] crying

aloud. Here, the author discerns in these birth pains the key to a profound

understanding of the place of suffering in God's redemptive plan not only

for humanity but for the cosmos, and especially in the life of the Church

and the individual Christian.
