How Suffering Sets You Free

My friend Matt Smethurst from The Gospel Coalition interviewed me about my new book Glorious Ruin: How Suffering Sets You Free. Introducing the exchange he and I had, Matt writes:

Ever since the revolt in Eden, suffering has been inescapable. All of us live and move and have our being amid the wreckage of the Fall. Pain—universal as it is real—haunts us, stalks us, plagues us.

In his new book, Glorious Ruin: How Suffering Sets You Free (David C. Cook), Tullian Tchividjian offers a unique angle on this perennially vexing subject. Rather than focusing on the why or the how of suffering, Tchividjian zooms in on the who, demonstrating that the answer to our pain isn’t finally found in a syllogism but in a Savior—a suffering Savior.

    still reading the book slowly. the interview was very good. It helped bring to my mind the times when I asked God Why? When My mother and Grandmother died, my best friend, my sister.
    Why is life like a mean joke someone is playing on me? Then I realize God is not the joker.
    We are blessed today to have the revelation Job did not have.
