A biblical theology of suffering revealed through the lives of those who experienced and taught about suffering in the Scriptures.
Too many Christian books and blogs dealing with suffering offer only platitudes and anecdotes devoid of the stability of substantial truth. Strength in the River is a notable exception because of its careful and caring exposition of the enduring truth of Scripture. Steve Swartz avoids abstract theological reflection by taking you into the daily lives of biblical men and women, carefully unfolding their excruciating experience with suffering, and practically illustrates how you should respond to adversity. - from the Foreword by Dr. John D. Street
