The Problem of Pain
"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?" Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963), who many consider to be the greatest Christian thinker of our time, attempts to disentangle this knotty issue in his powerful classic The Problem of Pain, an audio series CD set.
With his wealth of compassion and insight, C. S. Lewis offers answers to these crucial questions and shares his hope and wisdom of human nature. It can be said that there is no more difficult challenge to monotheism, and Lewis does not deny it. With the force of his powerful intellect but also his famously compassionate heart, he responds to the challenge compellingly and faithfully.
C. S. Lewis 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. He wrote more than 30 books, including The Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent Planet, The Four Loves, The Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.
