Description: In every age there is perplexity around the mystery of human suffering. It has always provided the stumbling block for many concerning the existence of God. Why does a loving God allow pain and suffering? Robert Spitzer provides a framework for gaining insight into the mystery of suffering which he hopes will enable readers to see light in the darkness.

The book is structured within the nine Christian Foundations for Suffering Well. Spitzerís aim is to show that if these foundations are personally internalised we will encounter suffering in a way that is transformative. He explains why suffering - in combination with love - is one of the most powerful motivating agents for personal, cultural, and societal development. Suffering and love are inextricably bound up with one another on the highest levels of human meaning.

In addition to addressing the complexity of suffering, Spitzer gives a comprehensive explanation of contemporary evidence for God, the soul, and the resurrection, and helps us understand how God uses suffering to lead us to the resurrection, and to compassion for others. Finally in addressing the perplexing questions associated with suffering Spitzer teaches us how to suffer well.
