Surviving the Suffering

Overview

As a practicing cardiovascular surgeon, I have seen firsthand much suffering. The profession that I have chosen means that a few people under my care each year will die. I have seen all of the emotions man can feel under these circumstances, from rage to peace, from fear to calm, from sadness to hope. I have seen optimism cruelly crushed and unsalvageable situations miraculously changed. I think that I can truly say that each person's suffering and their response to it is ...

Overview

As a practicing cardiovascular surgeon, I have seen firsthand much suffering. The profession that I have chosen means that a few people under my care each year will die. I have seen all of the emotions man can feel under these circumstances, from rage to peace, from fear to calm, from sadness to hope. I have seen optimism cruelly crushed and unsalvageable situations miraculously changed. I think that I can truly say that each person's suffering and their response to it is unique.

All suffering is not the same. How do we diagnose the different causes of our suffering? And how do we provide the correct treatment?

Many of us persist in our suffering because we do not diagnose the correct cause or apply the appropriate remedy, and then we compound our problem with complications that we ourselves create.

In Surviving The Suffering, Dr. Tim Moore addresses the various types of suffering in the Christian life, from chastisement and pruning to spiritual warfare. This detailed and practical guide gives both the causes of our suffering and the ways we can avoid applying the wrong correction to the wrong problem.

As Christians, we will experience pain in our lives, but with God's help and this handbook, we can find a better way of Surviving The Suffering.
