Making Sense of Pain and Suffering

“When the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly, then the Weaver will explain why the dark threads were as needful as the threads of gold and silver. As the skies continue dark and overcast, and shades of night obscure the light, may grace be ours ever to remember that the God who cannot err is able to make us perfect through suffering.”
—Herbert Lockyer, Dark Threads the Weaver Needs

Suffering is an age-old question that has puzzled the people of God since time began. After all, if our God is both a loving and an all-powerful Being, why does He allow such pain and suffering in the world?

At the age of eighty-two, legendary Bible scholar Dr. Herbert Lockyer set out to answer this question. As he watched his wife of sixty-six years slowly fade from loving spouse to an incapacitated person who needed his constant care, he looked upon her afflicted, helpless form and asked, O my God, why?

In this outstanding work, Lockyer does not present ideas on how to cope with suffering but rather teaches how to pass through it, removing self-pity and using personal trials as a springboard to help others. In the midst of his darkest hour, Lockyer examines the problem of human suffering in light of God’s love and His eternal plan.

About the Author

Dr. Herbert Lockyer (1886–1984) was a preacher and Bible teacher, and the author of more than fifty books. His best-known titles include All the Men of the Bible and All the Women of the Bible. Dr. Lockyer held pastorates in Scotland and England for twenty-five years. As pastor of Leeds Road Baptist Church in Bradford, England, he became a leader in the Keswick Higher Life Movement, which emphasized the significance of living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

He received honorary degrees from both the Northwestern Evangelical Seminary and the International Academy in London.
