In Why Suffering?, world-renowned defender of Christianity Ravi Zacharias and Oxford University philosopher Vince Vitale carefully walk you through a variety of responses that considered cumulatively provide a clear, comprehensive, and convincing case that God is both loving and all-powerful.
On Friday, December 14, 2012, a twenty-year-old gunman walked into Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut and killed twenty small children and six adults. There are no words to describe how sickening this is. How on earth could God allow it? Events like this beg questions about God. Why would an all-good and all-powerful God create a world full of such evil?
Why Suffering? is written with great respect for the complexity of the issue, recognizing that many who read it will be in the trenches of deep suffering themselves.

"We are all different, and we all suffer differently, so no one-size-fits-all answer will ever satisfy. But here, two of Christendom's ablest Christian voices present their best responses and give incisive critiques of the major options. Their conversation is an open invitation to help us all reach an 'examined life' for ourselves."Os Guinness, author of Unspeakable: Facing Up to the Challenge of Evil
"Suffering and evil are persistent and universal problems, but no one has tackled these issues with more penetrating insights, engaging stories, and practical answers than Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale. WHY SUFFERING is both academically satisfying and spiritually enriching. Every reader will come away, as I have, with fresh stimulation, new enlightenment, and personal satisfaction."Norman L. Geisler, Ph.D., author or co-author of over 90 books including If God, Why Evil? and Professor of Apologetics at VeritasSeminary.com
"In Why Suffering, two of the world's leading Christian Apologists address the world's hardest question. Avoiding the glib or the abstract, they offer us a highly readable, intellectually robust, biblically framed, and truly compelling answer, filled with hope in the God who enters our suffering to end our suffering."Simon Ponsonby, Pastor of Theology St. Aldates Oxford, author of God is For Us, More, and And the Lamb Wins

The last two chapters were more practical than the others but I don't it's worth buying for just those two chapters. If you are getting ready to debate someone on the reasons for suffering then this is a good resource. If you are hoping for some comfort in your own suffering this book will not provide answers that satisfy you.
ButchFloridaAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Why Suffering: Finding Meaning and Comfort When Life Doesn't Make SenseMarch 30, 2015ButchFloridaAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Why Suffering" is the best many books on suffering that I have read. I think "Why Suffering", except for Ravi Zacharias' autobiography, is his best book. Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale give multiple answers to "Why Suffering", but I think their thesis and bottom line is that the answer to "Why Suffering" is a person and not a proposition. This is refreshing in a culture where the bottom line answer is often "The Sovereignty of God" which by itself can be cold, cruel and uncaring. "Why Suffering" underscores that faith and reason, head and heart, God's power and love are married, and through the person and work of Jesus Christ give us a meaningful answer to the question of ages. Thank you Ravi and Vince.
