    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."

    There are two C.S. Lewis writers. Lewis the dreamer and Lewis the reasoner. This book is a shining example about how he can take tough theological issues and use logical analysis to present them in a way that almost anyone can understand.Lewis gives clever examples that demonstrate what kind of world the naturalist would have us living in. His point, a world without pain and consequence is a world without free will. Lewis also includes a chilling section on Hell and a beautiful chapter on Heaven to conclude the book.I would have given it a 5, but it lost a bit in my book for including a section about creative evolution and for refering to the Genesis account of creation as a "folk tale". But this is still the definitive source on the answer to the question, "If God is all-loving and all-powerfull, why does He allow so much suffering in the world.Great for the skeptic and the believer alike.
