The Paradox of Pain

Uncovering the Only Avenue Towards Reconciling God's Goodness with Suffering
  • By James E. Buirkle
Product Description
All women and men of faith, whether they realize it or not, exist inside a paradox. Each night they pray to a God who they know to be in control of all things and perfectly good. It would not be unreasonable to fall asleep with the hope the night would bring no further blight upon His creation. Yet each morning they wake to find evil's scars anew. Once again, the paradox of pain has reared its ugly head. Is there a way to bring understanding to this paradox? Join the author and travel the only route possible. Traversing as through a maze, we will confront eight seemingly unsolvable quandaries that suffering presents. The path these problems force us upon will become our guide to uncovering God's purpose in allowing pain. And when we emerge from the maze, God's goodness will be fully vindicated as well as His wisdom in directing us to the sure refuge of faith when suffering becomes our portion. The author has spent the last 40 plus years in the medical field working as an intern, medical resident and then private practice as an internist. Paralleling this career has been a longstanding interest in the problem of suffering which was sparked by reading When Bad Things Happen to Good People, by Harold Kushner. Being neither a philosopher or theologian has allowed the author to discover certain truths previously unrecognized. He presently resides in New York City with his wife, daughter, a Himalayan and two new knees.
