Solving the Problem of Evil for the Believer. Using the Belgic Confession of Faith and the Heidelberg Catechism the Author reminds believers that "God works all things for their good." Using Scripture, this thoroughly researched yet easy to read work will comfort the believer in times of trial and suffering. The believer who takes his eyes off this sorrowful world and places them toward their heavenly home is the one with a living hope and good confidence in their God. No more fitting words to end this dissertation are there then what Rev. Hoeksema wrote in consolation of believers struggling through persecution, He is then thankful in prosperity and patient in adversity. He has an explanation for the suffering of this present time, for he knows that all things must work for his good and must serve to the attainment of his eternal dwelling place. He has comfort even in death. He sings through his tears. He confesses that he is a stranger and a foreigner in the earth. Then he can die in faith. Looking to the promise. Glorious confession!
