Posted By Justin Taylor On August 27, 2013 @ 3:17 pm In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled

A very moving interview [1] with R.C. Sproul Jr.—a man who lost his wife to cancer and their daughter with special needs, within 10 months of each other:

What was it that prompted you to attend worship the morning your wife, Denise, died? (00:49)

What enabled you to teach a series on suffering after having just experienced so much? (03:11)

Why should we try to “own” the sovereignty of God in the context of suffering? (05:03)

Why are those in the contemporary church struggling so much with suffering and the sovereignty of God? (07:48)

Why do bad things happen to “good” people? (10:05)

When Jesus suffered and died on Calvary, did God suffer? (12:00)

How do you hope this series will benefit the church? (14:37)

How can Christians encourage those who are in the midst of great hardship? (16:12)

How are you doing? (18:46)

You can see his new teaching series on suffering here [2].
