summary Å eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Gerald W. Peterman

Between Pain and Grace review î eBook or Kindle ePUB Why is there suffering When will it end Where is God in itDespite how common suffering is we still struggle to understand it and even to bear through it Between Pain and Grace gets to the heart of this struggle Its honest and detailed portrait of life challenges our assumptions about pain emotion and God himselfBorn from a popular college course on suffering this book answers critical uest. Gerald W Peterman and Andrew J Schmutzer Between Pain and Grace A Biblical Theology of Suffering Chicago Moody 2016American Christians don t know how to suffer well On the one hand we think the life of faith should be victorious and joyful so suffering seems like a defeat and a downer On the other hand because suffering seems like a defeat and a downer it must be caused by insufficient faith or obedience on our partNeither hand is biblical of course Instead both reflect the chirpy optimism and can do individualism of modern culture If it s going to be we often hear it s up to me The corollary of this sentiment is obvious but ignored If it doesn t happen it s my fault What American Christians need is a biblical theology of suffering one that recognizes life s hardness without blaming the victims Between Pain and Grace by Gerald Peterman and Andrew Schmutzer does just that It situates Christian experience smack dab in the middle of the now but not yet of the gospelIn our current metanarrative the overarching narrative of human life for those of Christian faith we find two opposing ualities existing side by side indeed they are sometimes mixed together First there is death and those things that go along with it such as suffering sin frustration betrayal violence corruption and groaning Second there are blessings of the gospel new life redemption the indwelling Spirit adoption hope life in God s community and ongoing transformationTruly the Christian life means to exist between two worlds the old world of sin alienation and death and the new world of righteousness holiness and lifeUntil Christ returns this both and uality cannot be resolved God alone can wipe every tear from their eyes with finality Revelation 214 That doesn t mean there are no actions the Christian community can take to ameliorate existing suffering or to prevent future suffering We can and must do both Indeed God always uses human agents to carry his plan forward emphasis in originalStill suffering is an intrinsic part of life in the present age so it is a duty of Christians to understand it better so they can minister to its victims with greater compassion and healing The authors contribute to a better understanding of suffering by outlining the basics of affliction in Scripture in chapter 1 Chapter 2 turns to the relational ecosystem of sin and suffering that is the relationship of God to humanity of humans to one another to animals and to the inanimate created orderChapters 3 and 4 are theological They describe the suffering of God and of Jesus Against classical philosophical theism which teaches that God does not suffer and against panentheism which teaches that God is not sovereign over suffering the authors describe God as a caring King the One characterized by willing vulnerability emphasis in originalChapter 5 argues that the Church needs to recover the practice of lamentation that is the language of lament The lament whether individual or corporate is the most common form of prayer in the Psalms Contemporary Christians are often uncomfortable with laments frank complaining to God eg My God my God why have you forsaken me Psalm 221 Without lament however sufferers can t make sense of what s happening to or in themselves The very structure of lament brings shape to the formlessness of suffering For me personally this was the best chapter in the bookThe remaining chapters discuss a variety of topics redemptive anger chapter 6 suffering prayer and worldview chapter 7 leadership and tears chapter 8 family toxins chapter 9 sexual abuse chapter 10 mental illness chapter 11 and the role of the Christian community in ameliorating and preventing suffering chapter 12 Each of these chapters mines Scripture for wisdom on the topics as well as draws on the best of the social sciences The discussion of family toxins in chapter 9 for example puts the story of the Patriarchs Abraham Isaac Jacob and Joseph into fruitful dialogue with family systems therapy It is a tour de force Chapter 13 brings the book to a conclusion by reflecting on the metanarrative of Scripture which progressives in the arc of Creation Devastation Restoration In Christ God s devastated creation is being restored at the individual social and cosmic levelsBetween Pain and Grace is not always easy reading and like most books on hard topics readers will find all sorts of nits to pick Nonetheless Gerald Peterman and Andrew Schmutzer have written a valuable treatment of a difficult subject I highly recommend itPS If you found my review helpful please vote Yes on my com review page
