I recently lost my son to an aggressive and inoperable brain tumor. He was 12. This book validated a lot of my thoughts and feelings I had about God. It, also, made me think of different aspects of pain and suffering I would not have otherwise known had it not read the book.
Part 1 of the book was a bit hard to digest due to the higher level of writing. But I thoroughly enjoyed Parts 2&3. I will definitely be reading again.

Keller deals with almost every angle when it comes to the truth of suffering. He discusses both the personal and philosophical ideas in an unashamed and in afraid way dealing with the big questions that all suffers face. He doesn't back down from the sticky stuff and answers each in a satisfactory way.
Keller also does a great job at showing the historical views of suffering being nuanced enough to show all the views of suffering from scripture. This isn't a one size fits all type if advice. In fact Keller states clearly that there are many Tyler's of suffering and each must be dealt with differently.
However, my favorite part was the stories of real people at the end of each chapter. Hearing how they dealt with suffering was incredibly inspirational.
