Cover
Hope Publishing House, 1991 - 291 Seiten
A philosophical study on the high price of life, love & happiness which probes the significance of pain & suffering. By looking at the complex, demanding & compassionate Christianity that Jesus lived & died for, this text examines why the human experience inevitability encompasses both joy & suffering, disappointment & success, heartbreak & achievement. It details how philosophy, theology & psychology have been twisted & subverted to draw believers away from, instead of closer to, God.
