What happens then when we follow Gods will to the best of our abilities and heartbreak strikes Do we mean it when we implore Have Thine own way Lord or does that only apply in times of blessings or small manageable hurts John Feinberg knows that conundrum intimately. In 1987 his beloved wife was diagnosed with an incurable genetically trans- mitted disease. They were immediately challenged in their faith and their approach to Gods goodness in the face of the evil of suffering. More they discovered just how little their Christian community understood about how to support people in crisis. When There Are No Easy Answers considers the problem of grief from every angle just as the Feinbergs walked through it in their journey. It confronts the question of justice examines the nature of God and argues for the reality of grace. Feinberg explores the biblical reasons against the use of traditional clichs and platitudes especially by those in ministry and lays out alter- natives that can actually comfort and encourage the person who is struggling or grieving. John S. Feinberg is professor of biblical and systematic theol- ogy at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He has also pastored churches and taught at Western Baptist Seminary and Liberty University. Feinbergs previous works include Continuity and Discontinuity Ethics for a Brave New World and The Many Faces of Evil. 6 CHRISTIAN LIVING ISBN 978-0-8254-4412-8 9 7 8 0 8 2 5 4 4 4 1 2 8 When There Are No Easy Answers Thinking Differently About God Suffering and Evil John S.
