All people experience suffering and sorrow, yet our responses to suffering often vary widely. As we grapple with the hardships and sorrows that accompany life in this fallen world, it is crucial that we build our understanding of human suffering and divine sovereignty on the firm foundation of Scripture. In this session Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. shares poignant stories from his own life as he presents important scriptural teachings about God’s role in human suffering.
The book of Job is a window into the sufferings of a righteous man. It can be considered one of the darker books of the Bible, but that is precisely the reason why the doctrines of grace shine so brightly through it. In this lecture, Dr. Lawson focuses on the doctrines of the sovereignty of God and total depravity in the book of Job to shine a light on why the grace of God is absolutely necessary to save sinners.
