Lewis wrote two books about pain: this one and [b:A Grief Observed|49221|A Grief Observed|C.S. Lewis|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1412529325s/49221.jpg|894384]. While he fully admits to "shrinking" from pain, his voice here is the cool, calculating views of the scholar examining a subject. It isn't until 20 years later that we get the impassioned voice of a human being living through what he had only imagined years later. I like them both, but I think they are better together.

Side note: loved his observations about mosquitoes. ( )

Pain and evil seem to be out of place in a universe created by an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, loving and just God. Lewis does an excellent job of examining this question in a comprehensible way. ( )

I literally finished this book a second time and picked it back up a week later and started reading it a third time. ( )

Em O Problema do Sofrimento, o maior pensador cristão de nosso tempo trouxe à luz a complicada discussão sobre um dos temas mais difíceis do cristianismo - O Sofrimento. Nos tempos de aflição, muitas são as perguntas que angustiam as pessoas em todo o mundo:
• Por que sofremos?
• Se Deus é bom e todo-poderoso, por que permite que suas criaturas sofram?
• A aflição faz parte do plano divino para nosso aperfeiçoamento ou é simplesmente um capricho dele?
A leitura deste clássico ajudará você a manter uma postura adequada nos momentos de dor. A riqueza verdadeira dos filhos de Deus está em outro mundo e o único tesouro real é a presença inefável de Cristo.

In this book, C.S. Lewis addresses the problem of evil: if God is good and all-powerful, why is there suffering? His answer to this is dense and philosophical. Before he starts his main argument however, he says that this “problem” is peculiar to Christianity - if you are an atheist, the “evil” you might see in the universe is really just an “is” which suggests no “ought.” So really, it’s only when you have already accepted the central tenets of Christianity that this even becomes a “problem” at all. (Interestingly, although not really its purpose, his discussion amounts to a rejection of the intelligent design argument. He does not think that anyone could look at the universe as it is, and infer a loving, good, all-powerful God from it.)

He begins his proper argument by asserting that a universe without suffering is a logical absurdity — you might as well ask if God could have made a universe in which squares were round. As far as I can understand, the idea is that in order for consciousnesses to interact with each other, there must be a neutral “field” in which this occurs — and its neutrality (i.e., not malleable to one’s every whim) necessitates the potential for pain. This is a weird argument, and I get the sense that Lewis feels awkward making it, but in the end it works, I think.

Next, he suggests that the mistake in the objection is that, when it comes to talking about God, we generally equate goodness with kindness — easing suffering. He argues, rather, that God’s love is such that requires pain on our part, and that this is ultimately a good thing, due to our fallen state. The first chapter called “Human Pain” is one of the clearest, most uncompromising and straightforward articulations of the Christian doctrine of man’s relationship to God that I’ve ever read. This is no namby-pamby feel-good Christian fluff, despite how Lewis’s books are marketed these days. This is hardcore.

He ends with a discussion about Hell, and here I think he slips a little bit on his conception of free will (which clashes somewhat with his discussion of man’s fallenness elsewhere, and I think is a sticky point for Lewis in general). His chapter on animal pain is interesting, in that even though he doesn’t see animals as conscious beings capable of “real” (i.e., human-like) suffering, he finds a place for our sympathy toward them and our desire that they would be in heaven.

Overall this book provides a lucid and striking discussion of ideas that would seem counterintuitive at first glance (and indeed have troubled philosophers throughout the ages). Lewis’s talent is in explaining them in such a way that they became so clear I wondered why I hadn’t thought of them myself already. ( )

Not many years ago when I was an atheist, if anyone had asked me, "Why do you not believe in God?" my reply would have run something like this: "Look at the universe we live in.
