Mark Talbot, associate professor of philosophy at Wheaton College, has been laboring for years on a book tentatively entitled When the Stars Disappear. If you’re reading this and you’re interested in the heartbreaking and perplexing problem of profound suffering, you may want to pause and pray that God would give Dr. Talbot wisdom and strength and joy and endurance to finish this work. I believe it will be uniquely helpful to the church.

He recently spoke at the 2012 Works of God Conference on hope and endurance when the suffering does not stop.
