Which of us, when the shadow of the cross of suffering has fallen across our lives, hasn't in anguish cried out, "Why, God?" How many of us have sat weeping and helpless with others who were asking the same question? Nothing tests the extreme limits of our faith like sorrow and suffering. Gardiner Spring compassionately draws up a chair next to ours and shares wisdom from God's Word that will light candles of comfort, hope and meaning for our darkest hours of sorrow. He helps us build a theology of suffering that will benefit us personally and strengthen our ability to walk alongside others who are suffering.
