Excellent book for those who want to understand the true Christian life. Stands in stark contrast to the "health and wealth" theology of our day and presents a more biblical view of what it means to follow Christ, namely, suffering and self-denial.

This was a very informative book. Carson critically analyzes various bible themes related to the "problem" of suffering and evil. As the title indicates, this is a preventive medicine which really gives more background for Peter's statement, "12Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you." 1 Peter 4:12.His short section on the providence of God and how it relates to suffering and evil was also useful. I would strongly suggest any believer to read it.
