Description

As a Christian, it can be hard to answer the question of why people suffer in God's world, especially to for those new to or learning about the Christian faith. Why Do People Suffer? is an accessible and hopeful exploration of a key faith issue, that provides an ideal basis for discussion, helping the reader to think through the issues and offering hope in a God who understands and shares in our suffering. The book explores where suffering came from and the role of evil in the world, using recent examples such as 9/11 and the Asian Tsunami with which a contemporary audience can connect. Colour illustrations and information boxes throughout the book draw on news items and other people's experience of pain and suffering to help give perspective to the issues being discussed.show more
