God in Pain: Teaching Sermons on Suffering (Teaching Sermons Series)
Barbara Brown Taylor (Author)
DescriptionEveryone understands human pain. But many Christians have difficulty comprehending God's pain, especially God's pain in the death of Christ. Is it atonement or child abuse? To speak of God in pain, says Barbara Brown Taylor, is not only to address the biblical stories of Christ's suffering and death but also to proclaim the God who is present in our pain. This volume of teaching sermons on suffering presents different approaches to the problem of God in pain. In each sermon, Taylor speaks with sensitivity and insight as she addresses both the human and divine impact of pain.
