Do you struggle with doubt when terrible things happen?  Does it threaten your faith?

John Feinberg had that exact scenario happen in his life.  His wife, Patricia, was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease, currently uncurable, and Feinberg felt his faith trembling.

He wrote this book as a testimonial to what happened in his own family.  He felt he had a different way of telling the story of affliction.

About the Author-

John Feinberg is currently a professor of biblical and systematic theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.  He is a former pastor.

My thoughts-

I thought this book was well written.  John Feinberg covered many different subjects like, what to say and do, what not to say, and how to accept what is happening.

I learned that timing is crucial to what you say to someone who is suffering.  I learned that if I am the one experiencing the suffering to take it one day at a time and what to do during that time.

There is a must read appendix in the back about affliction and Feinberg’s viewpoint on how it can be used in our lives.  He questioned and had problems with his wife’s diagnosis and struggle with Huntington’s disease, so he wrote this book about affliction and how to deal with it. 

I know that there are many people around the world, who are dealing with similar situations, so this book was written for them.  It was also written for those who know the ones who are struggling, it will help them better relate.

I think this is an excellent resource to read and pass on to others.  Enjoy reading it.
