For human beings, suffering is inescapable, but does it have any purpose? How can we get through our suffering, and what can we learn from it? What does Jesus teach us, and how can we let him help us transcend our suffering?
Filled with true stories and in Fr. Joe Girzone's gentle and intimate style, The End of Suffering offers practical wisdom for anyone who suffers, whether from guilt and loneliness, physical pain or low self-estimee, abuse or loss, anxiety or fear. "As difficult a problem as suffering is for us to understand," writes Fr. Girzone, "this book is a modest attempt to try to help myself as well as others to approach this impossible phenomenon in a way in which we can at least see some beneficial and positive purposes flowing from our suffering."
Joseph Girzone (1930-2015) wrote the international best-selling Joshua series of novels. In 1995 he established the Joshua Foundation, "an organization dedicated to making Jesus better known throughout the world." His most recent novel is The Homeless Bishop and his most recent book of nonfiction is The End of Suffering (Orbis, 2012).
