Pain is inevitable, universal, and for over one hundred million Americans, it’s nearly constant. Chronic pain can be a miserable existence, but it doesn't mean we have to become miserable people. With his own chronic pain ailing him, pastor Craig Selness speaks and writes about pain using a Biblical perspective on living well. The good news of the gospel is that we can continue to do good—to be kind and gracious and loving and hopeful—despite physical struggle. His thoughtful, honest, and scriptural words will encourage anyone who hurts or loves someone who does.
