Why does a good and all-powerful God allow us to experience pain and suffering? According to Stanley Hauerwas, asking this question is a theological mistake. Drawing heavily on stories of ill and dying children to illustrate and clarify his discussion of theological-philosophical issues, Hauerwas explores why we so fervently seek explanations for suffering and evil, and he shows how modern medicine has become a god to which we look (in vain) for deliverance from the evils of disease and mortality.

Review:

"'This valuable book deserves to be widely read and appreciated.' James F. Childress, University of Virginia 'Hauerwas' book is a theological classic.' Duncan Forrester, University of Edinburgh"
