Publisher's Summary

For centuries people have been tormented by one question above all: if God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain? And what of the suffering of animals, who neither deserve pain nor can be improved by it?

The greatest Christian thinker of our 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 hungry for a true understanding of human nature.

What the Critics Say

"I find I am constantly realising that I owe many of my most basic convictions about Christian faith to Lewis's imagination." (Rowan Williams)
"It is really a pleasure to be able to praise a book unreservedly, and that is just what I can do with The Problem of Pain." (Guardian)
"A really remarkable book. It says so many things which seem to me to need saying today. It will help many people to revise what they had taken for granted and face possibilities which had not occurred to them." (Spectator)

    "I've really enjoyed"

    I've really enjoyed and listened twice. CS Lewis is really clear, honest and biblical! It really helps me in thinking more about the subject of suffering from a Christian point of view.
