About the Book

Take a Unique Adventure as You Explore Questions about God, Suffering, Evil, Pain, and Final Destiny

Be engaged, enlightened, and surprised by this unique book on suffering that gives control to you. Similar to novels that allow you to choose your own "path," Why Is There Suffering? by Bethany Sollereder invites you to make choices that lead you on an exploration of theological possibilities about topics like:

  • God's existence
  • God's nature
  • The nature of suffering
  • Evil
  • Pain
  • The final destiny of humans and animals

You will face multiple possibilities regarding suffering and its theological explanations and have to make choices about which one you find most plausible. Each decision will lead to further complexities and new choices, helping you see how theological choices lead to certain conclusions. This book does not offer final answers. Instead, it introduces the "theological" possibilities, both Christian and non-Christian, that you can explore and wrestle with so you can make informed decisions about your beliefs.

Taking an intentionally light-hearted approach to a heavy topic this accessible and winsome book presents an unusually helpful introduction to the problem of suffering and the most commonly offered responses to it.

Suggestions for further reading, appendixes, and accompanying images are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.
