If the world was created by God, why is it in such a mess? Russell Stannard begins his exploration with the question of evil. Why, he asks, do we see terrible things happening each day? Evil leads on to suffering. Evil does not, though, cause all suffering. What about natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, disease? And finally there is death. It is the one inevitability we must all face up to in our lives. Does it not make everything seem pretty pointless? Drawing on his scientific background and his Christian faith, Russell Stannard offers penetrating and perceptive responses to these seemingly unanswerable questions.
Here is a book written with great respect for the complexity of the issue, recognizing that some who read it will be in the trenches of deep suffering themselves and others questioning the very existence of a loving God.
Author: Ravi Zacharias
Why would a loving and powerful God allow so much pain and suffering? In WHY SUFFERING? Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale carefully walk you through a variety of responses that considered together provide a clear, comprehensive, and convincing answer. Responses like: Where there is the possibility of love, there has to be the reality of freedom, and therefore the possibility of pain. Wishing God had made a different world is to wish yourself out of existence. In comparison with other world religions, the Christian response is highly distinctive. Here is a book written with great respect for the complexity of the issue, recognizing that some who read it will be in the trenches of deep suffering themselves and others questioning the very existence of a loving God. WHY SUFFERING? provides an answer to the problem of pain and suffering with emotional sensitivity and intellectual integrity.

In this book, Sadhguru opens up a whole new perspective on “Why suffering?,” a question which has concerned humanity from the beginning of time. In the quest to tackle this problem, man has developed many theories, concepts and dogmata, but still, suffering is omnipresent in this world. Abrogating the erroneous belief that it is inevitable, Sadhguru delivers insights on the very origin of suffering and discloses ways beyond.
Overall, then, I would argue that eradicating all suffering is unlikely to make our
lives better. Furthermore, the irony is that without substantially changing our
biological and psychological make-up, eradicating suffering is a near

Suffering is a central component of our lives. We suffer pain. We fall ill. We fail and are failed. Our loved ones die. It is a commonplace to think that suffering is, always and everywhere, bad. But might suffering also be good? If so, in what ways might suffering have positive, as well as negative, value? This important volume examines these questions and is the first comprehensive examination of suffering from a philosophical perspective. An outstanding roster of international contributors explore the nature of suffering, pain, and valence, as well as the value of suffering and the relationships between suffering, morality, and rationality. Philosophy of Suffering: Metaphysics, Value, and Normativity is essential reading for students and researchers in philosophy of mind, philosophy of psychology, cognitive and behavioral psychology as well as those in health and medicine researching conceptual issues regarding suffering and pain.

The story of Job told for the first time with clarity, non-contradiction, understanding and coherence. The true Christian Suffering: What is it, how and why it must be entered and what is its purpose - all great surprises for every saint of God, small or great. The prevailing "gospel or suffering" is debunked, freeing the Christian truly to STAND confidently, without fear, in Christ for victory after victory and for his/her crown of life. This read will quicken the steps in the way of the Lord, lift the head in expectation, assurance and hope, and cause the heart to rejoice (Paulinian Boast) in the merciful, gracious and unchanging (predictable and reliable) GOOD ALMIGHTY. This work tackles some traditional and absurd teachings on the Book of Job along with that accompanying "Gospel of Suffering," which some have built to support these teachings. It removes the darkness from God's character and sets the disciple of Christ free to stand in the light of a good God who does not tempt (test or try) his saints. It shows that the statement by the young Elihu, that God will not afflict, is not only true in itself, but is the unfailing word of God. All readers, from the young Christian to the elder, will come away with a joyful freshness in the knowledge of the true Sovereignty of God. And burdens carried long now, and unnecessarily, will fall from many. Robert Sydney Reyes was added by the Lord to the Church several decades ago. He is not a scholar nor an expert, nor is he degreed in Theology. He owes no allegiance to any religious organization but accepts, as he should and must, all true children of God as his brethren, as he with them in the divine purpose mature into the stature of the fullness of Christ and await the certain return of our Lord Jesus Christ for all the saints. "Even so, come, Lord Jesus.""

As our understanding of the mechanisms of the brain and nervous system that underlie the conscious experience of pain has increased over the past 60 years, so too has the field of pain management. What began as almost exclusively the domain of anaesthetists has become multidisciplinary, and now comprises many other specialisms including neurology, psychology, nursing, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. This spate of activity has been paralleled by a similar growth in research: in neurophysiology, psychology and pharmacology as well as clinical medicine. Simultaneously, the pharmaceutical industry has spent billions of pounds and dollars in the search for better drugs for relieving pain. This ground-breaking book is compiled by former contributors to The Special Interest Group for Philosophy and Ethics of the British Pain Society. The issues discussed include satisfactory relief of chronic pain, the inadequacy of scientific biomedicine in offering answers, and ethical problems arising in pain medicine. 'Suffering cannot be found in a laboratory test or imaging study; it is only observable by communicating with the sufferer. The eleven chapters in this book approach this conundrum from vastly different perspectives, some highly personal and others broadly social. Issues such as the interface between the physician and the pharmaceutical industry are also presented. Each chapter describes a facet of the problems of suffering and some of the available paths to recovery.' John D Loeser in the Foreword
