This book was written 20 years ago but is still one of the best on the subject, and carries the comfortable and yet scholarly style of its well-known author.  Books on the subject of pain or loss in the believer’s life can range from psychological babble to theological rabble.  This is a much more balanced approach.  The chapter on “Pictures of Pain” is worth the price of the book (which you can usually find in a used book store.)  Here Wiersbe uses biblical analogies to show how God comforts His people:  the furnace, the storm, warfare, the harvest, travail and birth, running the race, the judicial trial.  Also, in an earlier chapter titled “The Really Big Question,” Wiersbe does a great job of dealing with the philosophical question of evil in God’s world.
