Three books on God and disease, disability, or suffering have arrived in the past two days. I am thrilled!
Sue Hume, who writes Hope for Special Moms, highly recommended Brokenness: How God Redeems Pain and Suffering, by Lon Solomon. Pastor Solomon is the senior pastor for McLean Bible Church, which has one of the most dynamic and comprehensive disability ministry programs in the United States.
Jeff McNair, writer of the blog disabled Christianity and a professor of special education at California Baptist University, recently published five years of his blog in his book, The Church and Disability.
And the one I am probably most excited to receive is a compilation of 25 readings on the problem of pain, which was recommended by Justin Taylor. Justin recently interviewed the editor of this compilation, Nancy Guthrie, on the book, Be Still My Soul: Embracing God’s Purpose & Provision in Suffering.
I hope to read and comment on each in the coming weeks.
