This book offers students a theological foundation for engaging the realities of suffering and dying. Designed particularly for practical theology students and trainee caregivers, it introduces the spiritual and theological issues raised by suffering and dying. It investigates how Christian theology deals with the problem of suffering, how the Bible deals with these difficult issues, post-biblical interpretations of Jesus’ suffering and the Cross, and modern instances including ecology, poverty, discrimination and war. Later chapters cover comparative religious approaches and the depiction of such issues in popular culture. Two key chapters relate theology to practical issues of caregiving and provide students with a ‘toolbox’ for thinking about suffering and death in a creative and supportive way.
