Suffering and the Sovereignty of God

Suffering & Sovereignty

I picked up a copy of this book edited by John Piper and Justin Taylor.  It is actually the transcripts of several talks by well-known preachers / speakers that were given at the 2005 Desiring God National Conference entitled, “Suffering and the Sovereignty of God”.

I anticipate blogging my thoughts on each “chapter”.  I was immediately drawn to the arguement by John Piper in the Introduction which states:

“…the ultimate biblical explanation for the existence of suffering is so that Christ might display the greatness of the glory of the grace of God by suffering in himself to overcome our suffering…”.

Lord willing, some time today I will post my thoughts on chapter one, entitled, “Suffering and the Sovereignty of God: Ten Aspects of God’s Sovereignty Over Suffering and Satan’s Hand in It.”
