“There is no question more important than how a supposedly good God can allow all the suffering and evil that’s in the world. And there is no book that answers that question better than this one, by the spectacular Peter Kreeft. I hope this will whet every reader’s appetite for more of his many great books.”

About the Book

Making Sense Out of Suffering

This book is for anyone who has ever wept and wondered, “Why?” Peter Kreeft observes that our world is full of billions of normal lives that have been touched by apparently pointless and random suffering. This account of a real and honest personal quest is both engaging and convincing. Written from a deep well of wisdom derived from experience and careful observation, Making Sense Out of Suffering is a book for empty hearts, not full ones. Read it if you are hungry for insight into the mystery of suffering.
