About book Pain And Suffering (2011)

I do not feel that I can give this book justice in this review, but I shall try my absolute best in as few words as possible. This book came to me in my reading journey in the middle of a very trying and difficult period in my life. As a Christian, I know that no one on this earth is exempt from suffering, but I truly wanted to learn to "suffer well" and to learn, grow, and mature through suffering. This book is a treasure trove of historical/cultural/religious views on suffering, the Christian scriptures' view of suffering and for dealing with it, and the author's compassionate, loving advice on how to walk with God through the pain and suffering. For anyone who is dealing with grief, loss, hardship, betrayal, or a horrendous circumstance, this book may prove immeasurably helpful. I recommend it to anyone who is at the point in their journey when they're ready to listen to someone else on the subject of their pain. If you're still in the emotional mist, it might not be the best time to pick this up, but if you're in a place where you can think and contemplate your journey, this book will be of great help to you. I loved the first half of this book, in which Keller broke down the various world views and philosophies of suffering. I found it so applicable and convicting to my own inconsistencies and blind spots. I connected less well with the second half of the book, the application part. It's not that it wash;t good as much as that I generally prefer concepts to applications in books. Over all, though, this is a great book just as one would expect from Keller.

The textbook for those who seek to better understand suffering. Encouraging and forthright!

One of the best books I have read on this subject. I would highly recommend it.

One of Keller's best, and most personal.

Didn't finish....wasn't what I expected.
