Description: This beautiful, small, book is a thoughtful inquiry through which Scott Cairns hopes to come to terms with what he calls ldquo;the puzzlement of our afflictions.rdquo; Drawing upon personal experience and a compelling range of early Christian traditions, Cairns offers the fruit of his pondering of suffering-his own, yours, ours. In doing so, he assembles witnesses-poets, prophets, and a gathering of wise men and women spanning centuries and cultures. Their insight will challenge and help you to appreciate the radical revision of human experience that Christ has established. ldquo;Given afflictionrsquo;s generous availability, and given the wide but so-far-unsatisfying range of apologia that the nagging enigma of our human suffering has provoked over the years, I thought I might press ahead for a somewhat more satisfying glimpse of why it is we suffer, and why it is that some of us-even among the apparently innocent-appear to suffer far more than others.rdquo; The central argument ofThe End of Sufferingis most directly addressed by Simone Weilrsquo;s affirmation that ldquo;The extreme greatness of Christianity lies in the fact that it does not seek a supernatural remedy for suffering, but a supernatural use for it.rdquo;
