The problem of pain is a perennial one; and for those who undergo particular sufferings it can often be the largest obstacle for trusting in a good and loving God. If such a God exists, why is there so much suffering in the world? And how do we deal with it when it comes into our lives?
In his fullest and most passionately argued book since 2008's bestseller THE REASON FOR GOD, New York pastor and church planter Tim Keller brings his authoritative teaching, sensitivity to contemporary culture and pastoral heart to this pressing question, offering no easy answers but giving guidance, encouragement and inspiration.

Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians. (Christianity Today magazine)
Tim Keller's ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him. (Billy Graham)
He has left no theological, philosophical, or personal stone unturned. The book is incredibly well researched, weaving timeless scriptures between salient observations of everyone from Camus to New York Times columnists. (Joni Eareckson Tada The Gospel Coalition)
This is undoubtedly one of the most helpful books I have read on the subject of pain and suffering. I say that as a pastor who would recommend this book to other pastors ... Overall, anyone would benefit from reading this. You could give it to a thinking agnostic friend, and there is much to gain yourself. It did me and out grieving family no end of good. (Pastor Matt Fuller Evangelicals Now)
his intelligent analysis is nevertheless noteworthy. He stands in the shoes of his readers, facing squarely up to the issues - and, above all, the ideas - that they are likely to meet in their everyday sophisticated lives. The book is directed at the new type of urban Christian, the kind of people who attend his church in Manhattan and who are drawn there in large numbers. This is a handsome book. It is beautifully presented, and would grace any bookshelf or coffee table, not as an adornment, but as the object of serious study for a Biblical Christian. It is a book that such loyal believers would be proud to be seen reading. (Lavinia Bryne Church Times)
Acclaimed writer and pastor Timothy Keller grapples with the age-old question: how do we deal with pain and suffering, both in our own lives and in the world around us?
