The question of suffering naturally evokes questions about the existence and nature of God, ethics, justice, sin, and life after death. Why Do We Suffer? helps you understand the concepts, vocabulary, and context of suffering in the Bible. Establishing a framework with the Old Testament, Harrington develops how Jesus teaching and example shapes Christian understanding in the New Testament. Addressing difficult questions in a readable, pastoral style, Father Harrington helps you draw meaningful and personal connections between Scripture and your own experience, and that of everyone who struggles to make sense of the human condition.
