A grieving father and husband. A search for understanding. How can a suffering soul find meaning and peace?
First-time dad Daryl Potter never felt joy so deep. Then one week after his daughter’s birth, a devastating series of medical emergencies threatened the lives of both his wife and daughter and that innocent joy was gone forever.
Daryl’s initial inability to find help in the Bible’s key book on suffering shook his trust in God. What followed was a desperate quest to find something in the story of Job’s trials that could help him or he risked giving up on faith altogether. The search that followed lasted over twenty years.

In this intimate and honest account, one man wrestles with deepening his perspective of God in the context of suffering. Comprehensive Biblical commentary is interwoven with Daryl’s deeply personal narrative. He offers those experiencing hardship a path to surviving life’s challenges. It is a path that creates a rich understanding of the one who is God of even the monsters.
