A Theology of Suffering

  • By J. Bryson Arthur
  • Foreword by Andrew McGowan
$17.29
($23.99)

What if suffering were not arbitrary? Not meaningless, nor a sign of punishment or defeat, but a fundamental element of healing, growth, and triumph? What if suffering were positive?

This book is a study and meditation on the nature, origin, and reality of suffering. Contemplating the suffering of Christ and other biblical figures, J. Bryson Arthur investigates a theology of suffering that testifies to its necessity within the plan of God. Bryson reminds us that the nature of suffering is to share fellowship with Christ - to take up one's cross and follow him. Thus, suffering is not arbitrary but intrinsic to the path God has laid before our feet: a path leading to restoration, wholeness, and fullness of life.

An important resource for students of theology, this is also a powerful and hopeful read for anyone seeking meaning in the midst of suffering.
