Crook in the Lot

by Thomas Boston


This little book tackles one of the biggest questions asked by people of faith from all places and times: Why does God let us suffer? Coming from a place of despair, the author assures himself and others that all pain comes from God, working towards God’s perfect plan for creation. Boston’s simple reminder that human suffering has a purpose—that it is not meaningless—has comforted Christians ever since its publication.
