When God Weeps

Why Our Sufferings Matter to the Almighty

by Joni Eareckson Tada

This book put my feet on clear biblical ground after my son died. Though suffering seems senseless and without purpose, God uses suffering to shape us, and is part of his will for our lives. This is the first book I reccomend to anyone who has been hit by severe suffering.
