Publisher's Description

Why would a loving and powerful God allow so much pain and suffering? In WHY SUFFERING? Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale carefully walk you through a variety of responses that considered together provide a clear, comprehensive, and convincing answer. Responses like: Where there is the possibility of love, there has to be the reality of freedom, and therefore the possibility of pain. Wishing God had made a different world is to wish yourself out of existence. In comparison with other world religions, the Christian response is highly distinctive.
Here is a book written with great respect for the complexity of the issue, recognizing that some who read it will be in the trenches of deep suffering themselves and others questioning the very existence of a loving God. WHY SUFFERING? provides an answer to the problem of pain and suffering with emotional sensitivity and intellectual integrity.

    I was expecting so much more with the majority of five-star ratings. 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.

    "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.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with why suffering. They don't provide a final solution, but they provide enough insight to help clarify any of our questions.
