Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur


Suffering often seems to catch us by surprise. One day we are healthy, comfortable, and happy. The next we find ourselves ill or injured, struggling, and distraught. The pain that invades our lives may come from our own suffering or that of a loved one. But no matter the source, we didn't see it coming. All too often, our perplexity prompts us to suspect God of wrongdoing.

In this classic book, republished in a revised and expanded edition, Dr. R. C. Sproul argues that we should not be surprised by suffering; instead, we should expect pain and sorrow in this life. Some are actually called to a "vocation" of suffering, and all of us are called to undergo the ultimate suffering of death. God promises in His Word that difficult times will come upon us, but He also promises that He allows suffering for our good and His glory, and He will never give us more than we can bear with His help.

Dr. Sproul offers solid biblical counsel and comfort for those undergoing suffering and for those who minister to the suffering, counsel that helps believers stand in times of trial with faith in a God who is both loving and good.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sproul just because I love him. I love to listen his sermons or ... 17 octobre 2014

I got this book – “Surprised by Suffering: The Role of Pain and Death in The Christian Life” by R. C. Sproul just because I love him. I love to listen his sermons or teaching series, love his books... but this book is like a hidden treasure in famous Jesus parable. He explained Problem of Pain in Christian life very deeply. I understand that I ignored problem of death, but I like to talk about pain. Everybody will die anyway, but pain is bringing a lot of questions in our life, how God, who is Love, can tolerate pain in his creature their life is already so short? This is the biggest question that atheists like to ask.

I read “The Problem of Pain” C.S. Lewis and another one – “A Grief Observed” he wrote after death of his wife Joy Davidman. She died of cancer at the age of 45. For me these two books are absolutely different on question of pain. First one – understanding on pain of young man without experienced it, second one – after great and heavy experience. But still no real answer about pain.

Another one - Gift of Pain by Paul Brand and Philip Yancey . Even by name of this book you will understand that authors will show how fortunate we are because of pain.

I believe that more full picture of Role of Pain in Christian life gave Dr. R.C. Sproul. His book is great and easy to read and understand. He even included Plato teaching in his book. Not so many Christian scholars do that.

For me this is very important, because without studying Ancient Greek philosophy we can’t fully understand Christianity.
Seeing Plato as God prophet will open us to a much bigger God that embraces the whole world. God did show Himself not to believers only but also to unbelievers. Remember book of Isaiah chapter 45 about King Cyrus: “Thus says the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have grasped...” God named pagan King as Messiah (Anointed).
Now verses from Plato Republic, book 2: “Beside our picture of the unjust man let us set one of the just man, the man of true simplicity of character who, as Aeschylus says, wants “to be, and not to seem, good”. We must, indeed, not allow him to seem good, for if he does he will have all the rewards and honors paid to the man who has a reputation for justice, and we shall not be able to tell whether his motive is love of justice or love of the rewards and honors. No, we must strip him of everything except his justice, and our picture of him must be drawn in the opposite way to our picture of the unjust man; for our just man must have the worst of reputations even though he has done no wrong. So we shall be able to test his justice and see if it can stand up to unpopularity and all that goes with it; we shall give him an undeserved and lifelong reputation for wickedness, and make him stick to his chosen course until death … The just man, then, as we have pictured him, will be scourged, tortured, and imprisoned, his eyes will be put out, and after enduring every humiliation he will be crucified, and learn at last that in the world as it is we should want not to be, but to seem, just.”

That was composed 360 years before Jesus was born.

I thing this book of Dr. Sproul will be very beneficial for Christian and also non believers as well.

An excellent discussion of how suffering is part of every Christian life. Though none of us likes to suffer, it helps to understand that suffering has a purpose in God's plan for us. We are reminded of God's sovereignty and our eternal future.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent insights into suffering from a biblical world view 23 décembre 2014

As someone who lives with suffering and chronic illness, this book is a balm. The Christian church, as a whole, is missing this message. For too many years Christianity has been sold and packaged as the answer to what ails us. Accept Christ, they say, and life will be perfect. Christ is, indeed, the answer, but the question isn't who will remove me from this situation and make life rosy again, but rather who will walk though this fire with me. The Father is not our private genie in a bottle, waiting for us to snap our fingers and He'll make our lives perfect in an instant. Rather, He will perfect US though our circumstances. If that means allowing illness or suffering into our lives in order to work our His perfect Will, then that's what He will do. Everyone, unless they are snatched from this world in an instant, will face hardship, injury, illness, suffering and eventually death. It doesn't mean He has abandoned us, or forsaken us. He is waiting next to us, hand out and ready to carry us though. He's there. We are not alone.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another amazing and theologically sound book from Dr Sproul 25 janvier 2015

Another amazing and theologically sound book from Dr Sproul. This was one of the most helpful resources to help me process tragedy in 2014 involving several of my family members. As Christ followers we are not immune to pain and suffering--how we deal with it determines whether
we are able to ultimately trust God and submit to an eternal perspective on life and in life. As a physician in pain management I found this to be
an equally valuable resource in giving me a greater understanding of how to react to pain and suffering in others. It is clear to me that those who
are able to look to God for solace and perseverance are better equipped to deal with those unexpected bends in the road. In other words, this book
is highly recommended for those who are suffering spiritually and physically as well as those who want to be to supportive of those who are.
Thank you RC Sproul!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Spiritual faith is grown in our adversity - If you don't struggle, your faith will not grow. 8 octobre 2014

If one wants to truly understand adversity and struggles and how God uses those situations to grow our faith, they will love this book. R.C. Sproul writes in such a simple way that any can understand. But in the simplicity of his writing, he skillfully weaves in profound truth and insight. It is an easy read. I learned a great deal about suffering. The main thing I took away from this book is that troubles don't come as a punishment (sometimes they do), but God uses our suffering for his greater good and to get us to a much better place. So when troubles come my way, instead of getting bitter and down on God, I embrace the storm and watch to see how God will grow my faith through it all. Understanding this truth will make hard times bearable and remind us to keep our eyes on Jesus and trust his work and direction in our life. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking a deeper truth. It's an amazing book.
