Habakkuk, as you might know, is the prophet who dared to ask God why and then tell Him that his answer didn't make much sense to him. And far from striking the prophet with leprosy or lightning either one, God answered him. The author includes his own translation of the text, going so far as to tell us the words for which we really have no translation. In the middle one of Habakkuk's three sections, he offers an interpretation that is intriguing but seems totally relevant. And in the end, he tells us what that sentence found four times in the Bible means, The just shall live by faith.
And finally he answers those eternal questions about suffering with joy, those things we wonder in the black of night as we lie there unable to sleep for the constant roiling of our minds from the trials we endure. If you have ever suffered—and who has not?—this book may be what you need.
