Reviews - What do customers think about The Bible on Suffering: Social and Political Implications?
Pretty limited Apr 17, 2010
When I read this, I was hoping for a biblical explanation for the pain and suffering that many of us endure. What this is, however, is a series of essays from a conference in response to the theocentric (i.e., CS Lewis) version of what pain and suffering are and how they should be interpreted from the Bible. In other words, an academic exercise aimed at a limited audience. Even so, there are some good insights here, but it is not meant for those who are trying to find meaning in current, real-life pain.
