For tonight (June 17, 2013) only, Glorious Ruin by Tullian Tchivijian is available as a free .pdf download. I cannot recommend this book enough. You can read my review of the book here.
Located in Colorado Springs, David C Cook is very closely linked to many who have been personally affected by the recent wildfires within miles of our headquarters. While we don’t pretend to know the “why” behind these tragedies, we do know there is a “Who” that is there to suffer with us in our times of trial. With that in mind, we would like to offer a FREE PDF download of Tullian Tchividjian’s book to help aid anyone who might be wondering about the purpose of suffering in a believer’s life.
In this world, one thing is certain: Everybody hurts. Suffering may take the form of tragedy, heartbreak, or addiction. Or it could be something more mundane (but no less real) like resentment, loneliness, or disappointment. But there’s unfortunately no such thing as a painless life. In Glorious Ruin, best-selling author Tullian Tchividjian takes an honest and refreshing look at the reality of suffering, the ways we tie ourselves in knots trying to deal with it, and the comfort of the gospel for those who can’t seem to fix themselves—or others.
This is not so much a book about Why God allows suffering or even How we should approach suffering—it is a book about the tremendously liberating and gloriously counterintuitive truth of a God who suffers with you and for you. It is a book, in other words, about the kind of hope that takes the shape of a cross.
