When you read through the Bible, you can see that God hates suffering. Jesus spent much of his life relieving people's illnesses and hurts. He calls us to do the same: to feed the hungry, clothe the poor, take care of widows and orphans and visit those in prison. So why doesn't our all-powerful God get rid of suffering?
Why does God let good people suffer? Tada answers the big questions about suffering:
- How can a gracious and loving God allow anyone to suffer?
- Why do "good" people have to suffer? Don't they deserve better?
- What possible good can come through suffering?
Popular author and speaker Tada helps you understand why God allows suffering and what we can learn from it in this pamphlet.

When Joni Eareckson Tada writes about hardship, it's real. When she says good can come from suffering, I wanted to know how....I wanted to gain a deeper understanding of the adverse circumstance I'm in. I was surprised that such a small pamphlet could offer such a large portion of hope and courage.
