Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller—whose books have sold millions of copies to both religious and secular readers—explores one of the most difficult questions we must answer in our lives: Why is there pain and suffering?

Walking with God through Pain and Suffering is the definitive Christian book on why bad things happen and how we should respond to them. The question of why there is pain and suffering in the world has confounded every generation; yet there has not been a major book from a Christian perspective exploring why they exist for many years.

The two classics in this area are When Bad Things Happen to Good People by Rabbi Harold S. Kushner, which was published more than thirty years ago, and C. S. Lewiss The Problem of Pain, published more than seventy years ago. The great secular book on the subject, Elisabeth Ku¨bler-Rosss On Death and Dying, was first published in 1969. Its time for a new understanding and perspective, and who better to tackle this complex subject than Timothy Keller?

As the pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, Timothy Keller is known for the unique insights he shares, and his series of books has guided countless readers in their spiritual journeys. Walking with God through Pain and Suffering will bring a much-needed, fresh viewpoint on this important issue.

Synopsis:

In the Preface to this 20th anniversary edition of his bestselling book, Rabbi Kushner relates the heartwarming responses he has received over the last two decades from people who have found inspiration and comfort within the pages of this classic book.
