COMFORTING PRESENCE

Suffering is universal; everyone experiences it at some point in life. In his new book, Glorious Ruin (David C. Cook), author and pastor Tullian Tchividjian reminds readers that our greatest hope in the midst of suffering is that God is always present in the darkness. The grandson of Billy and Ruth Graham, Tchividjian has experienced suffering in own life and, as a pastor, has seen it up close in the lives of others. Glorious Ruin differs from many other books about suffering because it does not wrestle with the “whys,” but instead emphasizes the “who.” In the author’s words, “The Gospel is not ultimately a defense from pain, it is the message of God’s rescue through pain.”
