According to Robert Morris, a pastor, spiritual director, and retreat leader for over thirty years, the biblical picture of God is radically different from this view. God's desire is to include us in as participants in the Divine life'to make us ?partakers of the Divine nature? in all that that entails. At the heart of this invitation to participate in God's own life is God's gracious participation in our lives. This innovative approach to reconciling human suffering and the nature of God focuses on how to look beyond easy answers, toward God's own suffering, moving from the position of victim to victor. Morris's own experience of chronic depression is a thread throughout the book, describing how one can move from meaningless suffering to suffering in a redemptive, healing way.Morris, Robert Corin is the author of 'Suffering And The Courage Of God Exploring How Grace And Suffering Meet', published 2005 under ISBN 9781557254283 and ISBN 1557254281.
