God of All Comfort

A Trinitarian Response to the Horrors of This World

by Scott Harrower

Beyond their physical and emotional toll, the horrors of this world raise difficult theological and existential questions. In God of All Comfort, Scott Harrower addresses these questions head on. Using the Gospel of Matthew as a backdrop, he argues for a Trinitarian approach to horrors, showing how God—in his triune nature—reveals himself to those who have experienced trauma. He explores the many ways God relates restoratively with humanity, showing how God’s light shines through the darkness of trauma.

Praise for Books in the Series

“Van Dyke is not only a skillful translator of these lectures, but also a meticulous biographer, an adept intellectual historian of an important Dutch political theorist, and a literary critic engaged in exacting textual analysis. The result for the reader is that Groen van Prinsterer comes to life—his education and political career, the reason for his focus on the French Revolution, and his conviction that Christianity is a guide to all of life.”

David S. Caudill, Professor and Goldberg Family Chair in Law, Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law

“An impressive interdisciplinary, theological, and pastoral approach to horror and trauma. Scott Harrower invites us into the narratives of Scripture and the Gospel of Matthew to experience a triune God who meets those on the road towards recovering safety, a story, and community.”

Andrew Abernethy, Associate Professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College
