Have you ever heard the question, "Why do bad things happen to good people?" Sure you have, you've probably even wondered about it yourself. It's a normal part of the human experience, this wisdom that only good things should happen to 'good' people, and bad things should happen to people who aren't 'good'. Makes sense, right? See, that's the problem. People think much differently than God does. He tells us His thoughts and behavior are not the same as those of people because His thoughts and behavior are higher than ours (Isaiah 55:8-9). Understanding this truth about God is the key to understanding anything about life here on earth. So, guess what? If we want to understand why bad things happen to good people, why physical and emotional pain rages through our lives, we must begin to look at life from God's perspective, while doing our best to curb our own. If you want to get past the many cliched` answers regarding the existence of pain, you know, the ones which offer no real truth and certainly no practical applications, if you want to know why pain is part of the human experience, this book will answer your questions. Parts of it will be challenging, but just like anything else truly worthwhile, if you apply yourself, you'll finish the book with the realization your efforts were wisely invested.
