In this insightful book, #1 New York Times bestselling author T.D. Jakes wrestles with age-old questions: Why do the righteous suffer? Where is God in all the injustice?
Bishop Jakes tells crushing personal stories from his own journey the painful experience of learning his young teenage daughter was pregnant, the agony of watching his mother succumb to Alzheimer's, and the shock and helplessness he felt when his son had a heart attack.

If you are faithful through suffering, you will be surprised by God's joy, comforted by His peace, and fulfilled with His purpose.
