Currid combines a quality selection of creeds, confessions, hymns, anecdotes to accentuate his conscise, reformed treatment of the problem of suffering and the Biblical texts that speak to it.
The chapter divisions are systematically arranged and do justice to conservative and consistent Reformed dogmatics. God is Sovereign, His character is just, and His Eternal Covenant organizes our understanding of His relationship to humanity.
Currid also does a good job with the varieties of suffering and its meaning for the believer and unbeliever (an important distinction missing from most traditional and philosophical treatments of the problem of suffering and evil).
The only regret I have is that Currid's brief expositions of Ecclesiastes left me wanting more from him on that book.
While this book does not provide anything profound that cannot be found elsewhere, it combines excellent doctrines into one, concise, and easy-to-read treatment that is of benefit to pastors, elders, and lay readers alike.
