Overview

The question of why God would allow pain and suffering in the world has vexed believers and nonbelievers for millennia. Timothy Keller, whose books have sold millions of copies to both religious and secular readers, takes on this enduring issue and shows that there is meaning and reason behind our pain and suffering, making a forceful and ground-breaking case that this essential part of the human experience can be overcome only by understanding our relationship with God.

As the pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, Timothy Keller is known for his unique insights into religion and culture. Keller’s series of books has guided countless readers in their spiritual journeys. Walking with God through Pain and Suffering uses biblical wisdom and personal stories of overcoming adversity to bring a much-needed, fresh viewpoint to this important issue.

  • Provides compelling arguments for the ongoing relevance of Christian belief in society
  • Addresses key practical questions all Christians wrestle with in their journey of faith
Walking with God through Pain and Suffering may be the most comprehensive contemporary book on the subject. And for me, that’s saying something. The book is incredibly well researched, yet it is impossibly personal. Keller has a way of taking the walking wounded by the hand and gently placing it in the Savior’s.

—Joni Eareckson Tada

A luminous and ultimately hopeful examination of the many aspects of suffering.

Booklist

It has something for everyone—something for the agnostic (Keller makes a strong argument that there are no true atheists); something for the philosopher (although he invites the wounded reader to skip that section); and something for the believer being beckoned into the inner sanctum of sharing in the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings (a place no one naturally wants to go).

—The Gospel Coalition

It is a resource that takes a multidimensional approach to suffering—tackling the internal and external realities—and takes us deep theologically and practically.

Keller has written multiple New York Times bestselling books, including The Reason for God and the The Prodigal God.

He is also writing his own commentary and study guide series. Christianity Today has said, “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, Timothy Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians.”
