This book eclipses Frankel' Man's Search for Meaning as the most beneficial book to my life per time spent reading/listening. I was afraid this book might be boring, but I couldn't wait to finish it. Both author/narrators are wonderful at both tasks. I listened at 1.5 speed and could've bumped that to 2, but didn't actually want to be done because it was so good.
Suffering is a very difficult topic for any world view to explain, and I have spent a lot of time reading and listening to books about it. Why Suffering handles the topic masterfully. It fairly presents the case from major world religions and philosophies and compares their answers to that of Christianity. If nothing else--and it is much more--Why Suffering is an excellent survey of the topic. I wish all my non-fiction books managed to be so deep and yet so brief. You will be smarter and possibly wiser for listening to Why Suffering.

Amazing insight and wisdom. I follow Ravi Zachariah International Ministry and encourage others to do the same.

This is a well thought about approach to the problem of suffering, analysed through the lens of the Christian approach. Have an open mind when you listen to this read. I can definitely say I’ve learned much from this read.
Crazy mindset of Christians shown in full force. Bizzarre world of Preachers highlighted in the book of how they try to justify kids getting sick, misery and pain.
in summary. ..everyone needs a slap to feel just how good the tickle really is.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Book is read well, can listen easily.
What could Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Why does not Zacharias and Vitale refer back to the Bible to find the answer to the question ??They refer to their own life experiences and sayings of other people AND DO NOT REFER TO THE WORD OF GOD to come up with any explanation to the question at hand.In my opinion, this is a very poor approach. It was very difficult to hear page after page a very NON biblical thesis of the topic based on their experiences.
Any additional comments?
Need to refer to the bible when we need to seek answers for such questions.But for these 2 authors, they saw fit that they refer to their own life experiences and what other people have stated AND NOT WHAT GOD has stated about suffering in the bible. How can their explanations be seen as authentic when they do not seek what God says about the topic ??

I loved the way Vince brought his personal testimony into everything it made me relate and I was able to relax and think about this complex question the book unpacks.
