"Suffering. You're either in it, or you will be! Richly biblical, Scott LaPierre's latest book reveals a gracious pastor's heart, compassionately equipping people for trials. Every believer needs this book."
Carlton C. McLeod, D. Min - Speaker, author, and senior pastor of Calvary Revival Church Chesapeake
"Everywhere we look there are extreme circumstances: hurricanes, fires, earthquakes, diseases, economic challenges, political turmoil, and the list goes on. I truly believe Scott has written a book 'for such a time as this.' This is one of the best biblical treatments on the difficult subject of suffering that I have come across. Packed with encouragement from the Holy Scriptures, Pastor Scott carefully lifts up the wonderful sovereignty of God in suffering and the cross of Christ during trials to help the reader develop the blessing of an eternal perspective. Every believer needs this volume in their library. I wholeheartedly recommend Enduring Trials God's Way!"
