Product Description

"Lewis knows both the dilemmas of doubt and the dilemmas of belief. But one finds an intelligent awareness of the great sources---not merely Hooker, Law, and MacDonald, but Aristotle, Aquinas, and Augustine. The average person will find Lewis helps him come to grips with distressing facts,"---New York Herald Tribune. 176 pages, softcover. HarperOne.

Publisher's Description

In The Problem of Pain, C.S. Lewis, one of the most renowned Christian authors and thinkers, examines a universally applicable question within the human condition: “If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?” 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.

Author Bio

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.

    The book was delivered on time and in fairly good conditions. Some of the first view pages were slightly tettered, but it was no problem at all.

    The Problem of Pain is an excellent book by C.S. Lewis. He explains so well and in an easy to understand format why pain exists in the world we live in and how we can cope with it. I highly recommend this book to everyone, because some time in everyone's life we all will encounter some form of pain. This book is essential to understanding it and dealing with pain and its effects.

    This one was actually a bit of a disappointment. Make no mistake, there is not really anything in here about dealing with pain or realizing how small pain is in comparison to x,y,z. I believe I got more out of the 2 page appendix than I did the whole book! There was alot of suppositions and not enough facts. I mean, he really couldn't think of anything brilliant to say. This book isn't terrible. It just isn't worth the money. Another thing I found strange was that Lewis said that he respected pagan myths. What?! Overall, this book is a disappointment and you would be wise to find another one of his books like Mere Christianity of Screwtape Letters.

    As always CS is thick! He explains pain from it's beginnings and thoughly takes you though it's understanding and development. We should embrace his teachings on the subject and grasp it's meaning. I have chronic pain and even though I understood what CS was talking about and what to do about it. I had a good hold on the subject before I read it. I will refer to this book from time to time. Just like all his books.

    C.S. Lewis just challenges you to think. Your mind can't help but be stimulated and your faith enriched and strengthened. In his book, "The Problem of Pain", Lewis helps us in our understanding of God's love and purpose for our lives in this world. Before gold becomes the precious metal we know so well it must be refined- such is life and thus "The Problem Of Pain."
