Kann ich glauben, auch wenn mir Schlimmes widerfahren ist? - Trost und Hilfe von einem, der ein Tal voller Tränen durchwandert hat - Eine glaubwürdige Anregung, Gott auch im Leid als gütig und gerecht anzunehmen Wie kann Gott es zulassen, dass Menschen, die an ihn glauben und ihr Leben an ihm ausrichten, von schweren Schicksalsschlägen getroffen werden?

Er gibt hier Anregungen, wie Betroffene mit dem menschlichen Leid und der damit verbundenen Frage nach der Gerechtigkeit Gottes umgehen können.

Many people wonder why bad things happen to good people. You have to realize that there are many things which are hidden from us; and they are known to God. And we do not have to worry ourselves to know about many of them, especially when knowing the true nature and reason may not avail any good. We are not God; and we cannot know everything. Yet God reveals what He wants us to know to us. The Spirit of God reveals many things to us; but He reveals what God wants us to know. And you may not have to use what God told you about a situation to generalize and apply it to some other situations. If you do, you may be erring and deceiving yourself and others.

Life is full of challenges. Some of the challenges we face in life are so painful that we invariably ask, Why is this happening to me? The Bible promises a day in the future when there will be no more pain and no more sorrow when the Lord establishes a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation 21:1-4). But until then, bad things will continue to happen. But we are not helpless. The Bible provides answers to suffering that will help us deal with the painful challenges we face. By following Biblical prescriptions we can grow spiritually and emotionally. Lifes difficulties will no longer be viewed as evils, but as challenges to be overcome with victory; lifes adversities can be made to work for us rather than against us.
Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.

Albert Einstein is often quoted as saying that "God does not play dice," claiming an orderly and predictable structure to the universe. Today, advances and presumptions in the field of quantum mechanics pose a serious challenge to such a position. It's a challenge not only for nuclear physicists, but also for Christian theologians who work to explain God's providence for the world. In Does God Roll Dice? noted Jesuit scholar Joseph Bracken claims that something like "directed chance" (Teilhard de Chardin) is God's normal mode of operation in a world always perilously poised between order and chaos. Bracken adopts the relatively new concept of self-organizing or self-correcting systems out of the natural and social sciences to deal with controversial issues in the ongoing religion and science debate. At the same time he deliberately keeps the language and context of the book suitable for the intelligent non-professional reader.

Are you a Pinocchio Parent? You may be asking yourself these very questions: What lies, clichés, and half-truths do I tell my children? How do these lies hurt my children and my relationship with them?
