The Bible teaches that we do not go through suffering in spite of being Christians, but precisely because we are Christians. Beresford here examines the work which the Lord accomplishes in our lives through hard times and by everything actually going wrong for us. This talk might not suit those who expect, or want, the Christian life to be a bed of roses, but it will most certainly help and encourage any who are actually going through it in any way because of their faithfulness to the Lord. The story of the caterpillar alone makes this talk worth hearing and Beresford shows us how we can see the light of God’s truth shining on us in even our darkest hours. He also explains how tribulation can become our friend and how we can learn to praise, rather than grumble, our way through it.
