    1. Gerald W. Peterman and Andrew J. Schmutzer, Between Pain and Grace: A Biblical Theology of Suffering (Chicago: Moody, 2016).American Christians don’t know how to suffer well. On the one hand, we think the life of faith should be victorious and joyful, so suffering seems like a defeat and a downer. On the other hand, because suffering seems like a defeat and a downer, it must be caused by insufficient faith or obedience on our part.Neither hand is biblical, of course. Instead, both reflect the [...]


    2. Pain, Emotion, and GodElisabeth Elliot coined the most memorable definition of human suffering that I have ever heard: “Suffering is wanting what you don’t have — or having what you don’t want.” These words came to mind often as I read Between Pain and Grace, because Gerald W. Peterman and Andrew J. Schmutzer have initiated a fresh conversation which does not claim to be the last word on suffering, but is characterized by the scope, depth, and fidelity one would expect from two of Mood [...]


    3. The authors have provided a biblical theology of suffering for pastors, ministry leaders, counselors, and others in church leadership. It is aimed at understanding our suffering based on biblical texts. It centers on what the Bible says about suffering well and helping others in their suffering.There are some thought provoking issues in this book. The one that struck me with the most force is our lack of lament. There is no place for lament in our church services, even though a good percentage o [...]


    4. Between Pain and Grace: A Biblical Theology of Suffering by Gerald W. Peterman, Andrew J. Schmutzer answers questions according to the Bible and what God has to say about this subject. When I first started this book I wasn't sure I was going to like it but what an eye-opener it is!I was very interested in reading this, as I watched my Mother who was dying with cancer, as she suffered and the pain she endured. And as for myself I have suffered many things throughout my lifetime. I am now living w [...]


    5. Gerald W. Peterman and Andrew J. Schmutzer's Between Pain & Grace: A Biblical Theology of Suffering explores one of the toughest theological problems in the Christian faith: Suffering. It's the focus of so much resistance to the Faith, as well as the subject of so many songs and stories that fill our cultural dialogue and identity. Suffering, it seems, is ubiquitous and personal. And the biblical writers wrote as often about it as any other theme. Psalms, in fact, is filled with laments, bot [...]


    6. "Between Pain and Grace" provides a Biblical view of pain and suffering. It has an academic tone and appears to be aimed mostly at Christian leaders and counselors. The authors believe that God is both all-good and all-powerful. Much of the book focused on what the Bible says about the topic (either in teachings or in historical narratives).They started by discussing pain, suffering, and the difference between them. They explored the origins of suffering as found in Genesis and discussed the ver [...]

    8. OK, this book was amazing for me. I suffer from Fibromyalgia & Endometriosis, and I can attest to the fact that if God wasn't by my side through the bad days, months, years I would be a completely different person. Constant, chronic pain changes you, and it's hard not to take it out of those you love. This book answers questions the hard questions that you've been asking yourself as long as you've had pain & suffering. It's chalk full of things you need to really make the wisdom it offer [...]


    9. In the vast smorgasbord of Cristian titles on suffering this book is a standout. It is not filled with the platitudes and poorly exegeted Scripture references like the majority titles in this field of study. It is instead a well thought out, engaging, and scholarly look at what the Bible has to say about suffering in the life of the Christian. This is not a book you read with an eye toward picking up a couple of concepts. It will challenge you to plumb the depths of this topic personally and the [...]


    10. I enjoyed reading this book on a difficult topic. Such an encouragement and reminder of our role as believers in dealing with suffering, our own and that of others.
