Dale Ralph Davis tackles one of the most troublesome issues Christians face as he teaches through 1 Kings 17. How are we to understand the trials we face? Are they a result of our sin — or something else? How should we respond to passages like John 9:3 and Psalm 103:10? As Davis teaches about the widow’s plight in 1 Kings he provides us with a very needed doctrine of the perplexities of God that should release us from the burdens we often assume as we wrestle with our difficulties.
