At the Heart of the Gospel: Suffering in the Earliest Christian Message by Ann Jervis

At the Heart of the Gospel: Suffering in the Earliest Christian Message

Suffering, while part of the human condition, is a state of being we would rather ignore. The author presents a convincing argument that human suffering is worth considering, and she offers the words of Paul as proof. Paul's insights into the predicament and significance of suffering provide the foundation for some of Christianity's most profound and unique contributions to understanding human life. Examination of three of his letters -- Thessalonians, Philippians, and Romans -- reveals his important reflections on accepting the suffering of believers with the conviction that, even as we suffer, God's plan for creation does not include suffering, and God will ultimately banish it. As a result, believing sufferers are not victims of suffering.
