Is God Really in Control?: Trusting God in a World of Hurt

July 18, 2011

Stuart Dean at The Resurgence:

My wife and I may not understand God’s sovereignty and goodness in the midst of her pain, but our comfort is that he is totally in control, lovingly working out his loving purposes. Our confidence is that he brings or allows into our lives only what is for our good. By stripping God of his absolute sovereignty, Open Theism denies us that comfort and confidence. When the truth of God is abandoned, so is the hope and strength to face suffering.

In the face of pain and unanswered prayer we need a book of hope, comfort and profound biblical insight. We need orthodox theology with a big pastoral heart. We have found Jerry Bridges, Is God Really in Control: Trusting God in a World of Hurt to be such a book.
