Why Read the Beyond Suffering Bible?

“Most people wish they could erase suffering from the world entirely. In today’s culture of comfort and instant gratification, there is no patience for suffering...”
Joni Eareckson Tada

You will not find a better, more comprehensive resource for understanding affliction and how God uses it for our good and his glory. The Beyond Suffering Bible will not only change a person’s perspective on disability but also change the perspectives of their family, community, and culture. It exalts God as preeminent and supreme over every disease and disability. It showcases the righteousness and mercy of God on behalf of those who struggle under the weight of illness, poverty, and injustice. Once God grips your heart with his purpose in suffering, you can’t help but pass on the blessing to the world.
