Philip Yancey on God and Suffering

Philip Yancey on God and Suffering June 19, 2017


“It’s so crucial to understand that God is on the side of the one who suffers and not the one who causes the suffering. . . . Jesus always responds with comfort, compassion, and healing. Sometimes art can be that solace, that channel of God’s grace, and sometimes words help as well. What we as Christians are called to do is bring that note of comfort and hope.”—Philip Yancey
