Why do believers suffer? Why does God permit periods of pain in the lives of the faithful? Has the question of why believers experience horrific trauma ever hindered your faith? For centuries, an undeniable number of believers have experienced agonies and heartaches such as: cancer, sexual rape, school shootings, spousal abuse, vehicle collisions, martyrdom, the death of children, sicknesses, murdered family members, human trafficking, and multiple more forms of pain and loss. Why? Why does God allow believers to encounter such unrest and agony? Suffering salvation offers a theological response to the ever-pervasive question that plagues believers worldwide concerning Christianity and anguish. If you have encountered moments of suffering while simultaneously living close to the cross, may this theological journey bring healing to your heart and understanding to your mind.
