The Problem of Suffering
A book that considers the problems of suffering and relates them to eight true-life stories of tragedy. How they found hope through Christ is the center of the book’s focus.
Experiences of suffering provoke questions that can be difficult to answer. Why did this have to happen? What sense or good can be made of it? How do I cope with it as it lasts?
