Invest your Suffering
Full Product Description
'But one thing I have never doubted is that, in the darkest circumstances, we were only ever in the hands of God. That has been the ultimate source of comfort and hope.'
As Paul Mallard knows only too well, the crucible of suffering is a horrible place to be. But lessons learned there can be powerful and memorable. And it was there that Paul and Edrie experienced unexpected intimacy with a loving God who is no stranger to suffering. They feel personally challenged to use their experience and insights to help fellow sufferers too.

Invest Your SufferingMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
Wow, what a brilliant book that deals with an issue that probably is at the heart of most of the trouble people have with faith, or is a major cause of rejecting it - the issue of suffering. It's hard to believe and understand that a loving God can and would allow suffering, and for those that have never been there the rote words often said to those going through or witnessing such suffering can seem shallow - and yet they are heartfelt and well meant. For those that have been there sometimes the words to utter to help others are hard to find as the pain is deep and the awareness keen that each person's suffering is different but yet similar. Mallard in this book lays this honestly on the table and tries to journey through and share the conclusions and answers he has found through his family's suffering. He points out that suffering is not experienced alone, but that we see and find in it an intimacy with a God that journeys through that pain with us, and in that suffering gain an ability in turn to experience an intimacy with not only our God but with other people too. For me this book is up there with Philip Yancey's Where is God When It Hurts - an essential book to give to anyone struggling with suffering.

"Absolutely riveting! ... The best explanation of the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ that I have ever read." - Fiona Castle
"This book is an inspiring love story, conceived in eternity but forged through pain and suffering. From beginning to end it is a moving expression of Paul's love for his wife, Edrie as they both struggle with the reality of her long-term debilitating illness, and of their love for God as they determine to trust his good and sovereign purposes whatever the circumstances.
Scarily honest, this book is insightful, inspiring and, above all, informed by Scripture. It is a must-read for all of us who struggle with the pain of a broken world and wish to support our fellow-strugglers.
Highly recommended!" - Richard Underwood, Pastoral Director of the FIEC
