Book Description:

"It is no easy matter to write a book for the family of God. Yet it is for them that these thoughts on chastisement are written."

So begins Horatius Bonar's classic work on how Christians should deal with grief in face of a faith that knows God to be good. Bonar mines Scripture and the wisdom of the church to reveal that God's ways, while not our ways, are intended to manifest righteousness. Indeed, the author argues that earthly bonds may be broken not to bring believers sorrow, but in order to draw them closer to an eternal relationship with God.

Profound and timeless, When God's Children Suffer reminds Christians that God will not abandon them but will instead extend grace to His children, giving them "beauty for ashes."
