Recommended Reading on Suffering and God’s Sovereignty

Posted On August 20, 2017

This season at Servants of Grace, we’ve been discussing suffering and justice, and what that means in light of God’s sovereignty. In our world today, many people have a skewed view of what justice is and God’s role in bringing that about. So many people are also confused as to how our suffering fits into a universe where God is sovereign over everything. With this issue of Theology for Life Magazine, it was our hope that readers would grow, not only in their understanding of how God’s love and justice are not opposites, but work together in all things. If you’ve found this subject interesting and want to study the issue further, please check out the recommended reading list below. These books are at the top of this genre in both excellence and readability.
