Product description

The problem of pain is a perennial one; and for those who undergo particular sufferings it can often be the largest obstacle for trusting in a good and loving God. If such a God exists, why is there so much suffering in the world? And how do we deal with it when it comes into our lives? In his fullest and most passionately argued book since 2008's bestseller THE REASON FOR GOD, New York pastor and church planter Tim Keller brings his authoritative teaching, sensitivity to contemporary culture and pastoral heart to this pressing question, offering no easy answers but giving guidance, encouragement and inspiration.

Author information

Timothy Keller was born in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He became a Christian at university, was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in America and worked as a pastor for nine years. He was asked to start Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan in 1989, and under his leadership the church's congregation experienced unprecedented growth from 50 to 5000 members. His target audience consists mainly of urban professionals, whom he believes exhibit disproportionate influence over the culture and its ideas. The 'Influentials' Issue of New York Magazine featured Dr. Keller as "the most successful Christian evangelist in the city by recognizing that young professionals and artists are 'disproportionately influential' in creating the country's culture and that you have to meet this coveted demographic on its own terms." Timothy Keller is renowned for his clear, reasoned approach to Christian apologetics and his book THE REASON FOR GOD: BELIEF IN AN AGE OF SKEPTICISM was named Book of the Year for 2008 by World Magazine. Timothy Keller lives in New York City with his wife Kathy and sons David, Michael and Jonathan.

Review quote

Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians. Christianity Today magazine Tim Keller's ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him. Billy Graham He has left no theological, philosophical, or personal stone unturned. The book is incredibly well researched, weaving timeless scriptures between salient observations of everyone from Camus to New York Times columnists. -- Joni Eareckson Tada The Gospel Coalition This is undoubtedly one of the most helpful books I have read on the subject of pain and suffering. I say that as a pastor who would recommend this book to other pastors ... Overall, anyone would benefit from reading this. You could give it to a thinking agnostic friend, and there is much to gain yourself. It did me and out grieving family no end of good. -- Pastor Matt Fuller Evangelicals Now his intelligent analysis is nevertheless noteworthy. He stands in the shoes of his readers, facing squarely up to the issues - and, above all, the ideas - that they are likely to meet in their everyday sophisticated lives. The book is directed at the new type of urban Christian, the kind of people who attend his church in Manhattan and who are drawn there in large numbers. This is a handsome book. It is beautifully presented, and would grace any bookshelf or coffee table, not as an adornment, but as the object of serious study for a Biblical Christian. It is a book that such loyal believers would be proud to be seen reading. -- Lavinia Bryne Church Times
