Why Do Good People Suffer Bad Things
Discovering the Root Causes of Human Suffering - and What You Can and Cannot Do about It!
by TR Williams

You are not alone if you struggle to understand why unwanted, unexplainable, and inconceivable bad things happen to innocent people! Never before have there been so many questions like: How could a loving God permit good people to suffer bad things and often make it appear as though the guilty are rewarded or go scot free? Why are there so many things in the world that seem unfair or unjust? Why does God seemingly hide his face from much of the horrific evil, pain and destruction? Does God really care? Is it fair for humans to be angry with God about their misfortune or suffering? Why are there so many good people accused falsely for their suffering? What defence mechanisms can I put in place to minimize evil, suffering, pain, misfortune, and the devil’s influence in my own life? What purpose does suffering, and pain serve in human life? These are some of the most thought-provoking, spiritually intuitive, deeply agitating, and most frequent questions asked by countless individuals, especially by those who believe that there is a God.

“Many people wonder why bad things happen to good people, or the converse, why bad people seem to reap great rewards in this life. . .. Thus, TR Williams brings together first, a central commitment to the ultimate goodness of God, and his ability to work for reconciliation and good to come out of suffering, and second, practical life lessons, derived in part from studies in the Book of Job, which offer us a way forward through suffering.” —Paul Reasoner, Ph.D., Professor of Philosophy Bethel University, Saint Paul, Minnesota “Touching, compassionate, and a rock-solid anchor that humanity needs when facing the shifting wind, rough waves, and storms in life.” —Dennis Kimbro, Ph.D., Educator, Entrepreneur, and Best-Selling Author “The Wealth Choice” “Great books help you better understand yourself and others around you. They give one insight into what is good and how to engage others with empathy as they also give us gentle advice on how to constantly develop and improve. This is such a great book.” —Dr. Charles E. Crutchfield III, M. D., Crutchfield Dermatology U. S. News & World Report, Top Doctor World Renowned Leading Physician
