By Fr. Anthony Coniaris.
Much has been written about human suffering. Recently a popular book had wide circulation even among Christians. Written by a non-Christian, it was entitled, "When Bad Things Happen to Good People." The answer it gives is that God cannot do anything about suffering. This is definitely not the answer that God in Christ has given to this all-important question. This is the main purpose of this book: How does Christ look upon those who suffer? Is He compassionate? Is He able to help? How?
