"Dr. Weaver has given us a rich context and orientation from within which we can fully and meaningfully engage with questions of suffering and death in a religious manner. This text will be vital for all who are concerned with and care for the suffering and dying, as well as for anyone who recognizes the engagement with suffering and death as a fundamental component of what it means to be human." - Steven Burr, Georgetown University, USA
"This fascinating book offers not only a thoughtful and critical exploration of the nature of suffering from the perspective of the Bible, but also a gentle and deeply pastoral response. It contributes to the ongoing academic conversations around theodicy and, importantly, it will make a difference to those who are forced to live in a world that is deeply marked by suffering and death." - John Swinton, University of Aberdeen, UK
"This book provides a solid foundation for examining spiritual underpinnings and applied practices, and offers both professional and lay persons an approach to compassionate care giving." - Patricia A. Sharpnack, Breen School of Nursing, Ursuline College, USA
