Description



About the Book



Why must humanity suffer? In this elegant and thoughtful work, Lewis discusses the question of why a God who is both omnipotent and good allows pain and suffering to occur.



Book Synopsis



Why Must We Suffer?

"If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?" And what about the suffering of animals, who neither deserve pain nor can be improved by it? The greatest Christian thinker of our time sets out to disentangle these knotty issues. With his signature wealth of compassion and insight, C.S. Lewis offers answers to these crucial questions and shares his hope and wisdom to help heal a world hungering for a true understanding of human nature.
