Suffering & Sovereignty

Suffering & Sovereignty

John Flavel wrote extensively on the subject of human suffering and how
it relates to divine sovereignty. He himself experienced great suffering
through the deaths of three wives and a son and continual persecution from
state officials. Because many of his writings deal directly with the theme of
suffering and because of his own experience with it, Flavel is a significant
resource for understanding a Puritan theology of human suffering and divine

In this book, Brian H. Cosby examines Flavel's teachings on suffering
and how that theology translated into practical application for suffering
believers. Serious consideration is given to issues related to the origin and
nature of suffering, how it relates to divine sovereignty, God's purpose for
it, how people were encouraged to respond to it, and the benefits of comfort
and consolation such understandings produce in believers.
