Drawing heavily on stories of ill and dying children to illustrate and clarify his discussion of theological-philosophical issues, Hauerwas explores God we so fervently seek explanations for suffering and evil, and and Suffering book shows how modern medicine has become a god to which we look (in vain) for deliverance from the evils of disease and mortality.
