Here is a description:
Why does God allow suffering and pain? Glorious Ruin, the new book from bestselling author Tullian Tchividjian, reveals the answer to this age-old question, which can be found in only one place: God’s presence.
We may not ever fully understand why God allows suffering to devastate our lives. We may not ever find the answers as to why we suffer, or discover how we'll dig ourselves out of the pit in the midst of it. But we don't need answers as much as we need His presence in and through the hard times.
For the life of the believer, one thing is beautifully and abundantly true: God's chief concern in your suffering is to be with you and be Himself for you.
In other words, our ruin may not ultimately spell our undoing. It may even spell our beginning. It certainly did for Him.
