Christianity and Suffering

by Rodney L. Reed

Christianity and Suffering: African Perspectives addresses the need for sustained theological reflection on suffering by Africans, or for Africans and is the fruit of the 5th Annual Conference of the Africa Society of Evangelical Theology. The contributions address age-old issues like why God does not prevent or relieve human suffering; they wrestle with causes of suffering including witchcraft, poverty, curses, and war; and, and they also explore appropriate Christian responses to suffering, all from within the African context.
