The Problem of Pain - C.S. Lewis - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Problem of Pain:

Why does God allow us to be hurt?

My favorite C.S. Lewis quote from the book:

"Try to exclude the possibility of suffering which the order of nature and the existence of free wills involve, and you find that you have excluded life itself."

Questions to ponder while reading C.S. Lewis:

Do you suffer?

Are you as kind as you think you are?

My review of The Problem With Pain:

A philosophical look at pain.

A thorough and detailed explanation.

Another C.S. Lewis classic.
