Keeping Our Bearings in Times of Suffering

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- How can we provide comfort, consoling, and reassurance to those who are suffering? What can we say that will provide lasting help to those facing adversity? Wayne Brickey provides answers needed both by sufferers and by those seeking ways to console them in "Making Sense of Suffering" (Deseret Book, $15.95). He answers such questions as "Why is suffering inevitable?" "What does it mean to be 'faithful in tribulation'?" "What good does it do me to suffer?" "How might I react to the suffering of others?"

Each of these brief, profound reflections can be read in one sitting. In his book, Brickey gives advice in addressing challenges of victims of burns, cancer and other health issues, child abuse, divorce, depresion, death of loved ones, and lonliness. He discusses how to deal with self-pity and selfishness. Accessible and edifying, Brickey's words explain suffering in the context of God's plan of happiness. Readers will come away with the assurance that God indeed "shall wide away all tears."

The perfect gift for anyone who is undergoing trials or experiencing pain of any kind, "Making Sense of Suffering" will lift the spirit while providing divine perspective.
