Summary

Summary

A #1 Amazon.com bestseller in Religious Ethics

In this elegant and thoughtful work, C. S. Lewis questions the pain and suffering that occur every day and how this contrasts with the notion of a God that is both omnipotent and good.

For centuries Christians have been tormented by one question above all: “If God is good and all powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?” C. S. Lewis sets out to disentangle this knotty issue but wisely adds that, in the end, no intellectual solution can dispense with the necessity for patience and courage.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lewis succeeds in lifting the reader from his frame of reference by artfully capitulating these topics into a conversational tone, which makes his assertions easy to swallow and even easier to digest…The fortune lies in Lewis’s inclination to set us straight with his charming wit and pious mind.” Amazon.com
“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.” The Guardian (London)

Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. His major contributions to literary criticism, children’s literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. Lewis wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include the Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent PlanetThe Four LovesThe Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.
