Publishers description for "The Problem of Pain" / by C.S. Lewis -- Why must humanity suffer? In this elegant and thoughtful work, C.S. Lewis questions the pain and suffering that occur everyday and how this contrasts with the notion of a God that is both omnipotent and good. An answer to this critical theological problem is found within these pages.
"For centuries, Christians have been tormented by one question about all: "If God is good and all powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?" Is there justice or wisdom to be won by suffering, or sme reward beyond understanding? And what of the suffering of animals, who neither deserve pain nor can be improved by it? Is the quantity and variety of suffering in the world inconsistent with, or evidence against, an omnipotent and perfectly loving God? The greatest Christian thinker of all time sets out to disentangle this knotty issue. With his signature wealth of compassion and insight, C.S. Lewis offers answers to these crucial questions and shares his hope and wisdom to help heal a world hungering for a true understanding of human nature, free will, and the will of the divine." ---Cover.
