Publisher's Summary

Sometimes life doesn’t make sense. When death, illness, unemployment, or a difficult relationship challenges everything we thought we knew, we can feel utterly unprepared to cope. Best-selling author Paul David Tripp weaves together his personal story, years of counseling experience, and biblical insights to help us in the midst of suffering, identifying six traps to avoid - including doubt, discouragement, and denial - and six comforts to embrace - including God’s presence, God’s people, and God’s grace.

Exploring a wide range of common experiences, this raw yet hope-filled book will empower listeners to cling to God's promises when trials come and then move forward with the hope of the gospel.

For all people w terminal illnesses

It turns out this book is for all Christians because sooner or later we don’t get what we want - life happens. Now I am equipped with the mindset that things will go wrong and God will give me the grace to get through.

Thank you Paul David Tripp for another great resource.

Re: Very Good Book

If you are suffering right now this is a book for you. Right now my husband is suffering from 3 major health problems all at the same time. We’re tempted to just throw up our hands & quit. But this book reminds us of all we have in Christ Jesus. Read or listen to & be blessed.

Hope for suffering

I got this book on Audible after hearing about Paul Tripp’s story of suffering. I too am dealing with life-altering, terminal disease. He was able to pull from my gray matter and heart what I’ve “talked” my whole life. But now it counts. Highly recommend for anyone suffering or for care givers of the suffering.

A Healthy Reminder of Life’s Circumstances and God’s Gift

Like Paul David Tripp, I’ve been through devastating physical times - mine due to seizures - and these valleys have brought me to Christ, and the Holy Spirit inside reminds me and brings me to better understanding each day. This book has been a great help as I’ve not been depressed but have always had low self-esteem. To know that God offers His grace in salvation humbles me more than a seizure does, and makes me love Him even more.

Bevan Greiner’s voice is amazing, with clear diction. And Paul David Tripp’s words are precise, cutting through my wayward thoughts to point me back to God’s Word and His Will. Well done, sir! I pray this book leads others to a better relationship with the Lord through prayer and His Word!

Epic read

Best book on the topic of suffering I’ve ever heard. Mr Tripp covers ever facet of the topic with respect for people & honor for Gods Word. And the format is perfect for small groups with discussion questions at the end of each chapter.

If you or someone you love is experiencing suffering, read this now

My dad and I went through this together because we are both individually going through different seasons of suffering. It has not only healed much of our brokenness in regards to suffering, but has also strengthen our relationship as father and son. Tripp personal experience and professional expertise provide the perfect platform for understanding and appropriately dealing with suffering.
