None of us gets out of this thing without trouble.

Despite our best efforts, everyone suffers—grief, sickness, pain, fear, despair—at some point in life, and the struggle to survive and make sense of that suffering irrevocably shapes our human experience. This slim collection features forty short (one- to three-page) essays and personal testimonials about suffering, mostly by contemporary Christians, grappling with life's hardships and what those experiences can teach us about God, humanity, and compassion. Sprinkled with quotations from Friedrich Nietzsche, St. Teresa of Avila, Deepak Chopra, and Thomas Merton, as well as a handful of poems and prayers, The Way of Suffering is a fortifying little book for readers of faith.
