    1. This will be the #1 book I will be referring to those who grieve the death of a loved one. Tremendous Gospel comfort in this little book!

    2. [This introduction of the "The Problem of Suffering" is taken from my congregation's newsletter under the section heading "From Pastor's Bookshelf.]From Pastor’s BookshelfOf all the books I have read this year this month’s selection from my bookshelf is likely the first one I would pick to reread before year end. In fact I might just do that, but admittedly there is a part of me that does not want to reread it. I do not want to because The Problem of Suffering: A Father’s Hope is a book th [...]

    3. Simply outstanding. Pastor Schulz's writing on the subject of suffering is magnificent. I especially appreciated how he interspersed brief sections from his personal journaling. If you read and enjoyed C.S. Lewis' "A Grief Observed," Sheldon Vanauken's "A Severe Mercy," or "A Small Cup of Light" by Ben Palpant, you will be greatly edified by Schulz's book.

    4. This is one of the best books I've read on suffering - precisely because it offers no explanation nor answer to it. Schulz tells it like it is, because he's been there.

    5. This book is well written and filled with scriptural references. This man, the Rev. Dr. Gregory Schulz, and his family have been through (and are still experiencing) grief that is indescribable. I normally don't admit to a book drawing tears and deep emotions but, the author really places you deep in his life/thoughts and you can't help but feel for them. The best part of this book (in my opinion) is that he and his family fought on for loves sake. Their hope and faith are strengthened even thro [...]

    6. This is one of the finest books I have read - up there with Lewis' A Grief Observed. I ordered the study guide which will be helpful as this book is re-read and re-studied. A powerful, emotional and spirit-filled book.
