There were parts of the book that did not seem to apply to me but I quickly found a great deal that did, and her words both touched my heart and opened up my mind to new ways of thinking.

Letters of Francis A. Schaeffer: Spiritual Reality in the Personal Christia. The Hidden Art of Homemaking

Something is taking place in us right now, which is as astonishing as the refining of silver, the purifying of gold, the finishing of the final touches on a work of art. ~

I read Edith Schaeffer's book with hesitation, having been recently given a poor health diagnosis. There were parts of the book that did not seem to apply to me but I quickly found a great deal that did, and her words both touched my heart and opened up my mind to new ways of thinking. I will refer my suffering friends to Affliction.

There is not preaching or teaching on how suffering purifies a Christian today. This book helps to bring that perspective to light. All people do suffer in this sin cursed and sin heavy ladden world but for a Christian it has eternal as well as temporal significance. This book brings biblical truth to bear on this ignored subject. Highly recommmend this book to those who are confused on this truth.

This author’s style—wordy, heavy on description— can be a deterrent to some readers.

That being said, her premise—that the God of the Bible sees our pain, draws close to us as we walk through it, and even uses it for his glory—can bring comfort and courage to a suffering Christian.

I bought this book for my mother. I cannot speak from personal experience. However, someone had loaned it to her, and she was interested enough that she asked me to buy her her own copy. I know that she said that the last chapter was not what she had expected, and that it was quite thought-provoking.

I have had a deep affection for the Schaeffers and L'Abri since I became a believer several decades ago.
This was the first book on 'suffering' that I read as a young Christian; it is filled with Scriptural insight and Mrs. Schaeffer's personal reflections. I have given many copies away and often use her illustrations with counsellees.
This book is a must for Christians helping others.

Great book on this subject. I highly recommend this book if you are "afflicted".

Very comforting and insightful book that deals with suffering.
I appreciate Edith Schaeffer's practical approach to living. She challenges us to walk with the Lord in a living relationship and see what our Creator God can do with yielded lives.
