Why do pain and suffering exist? Paolo Curtaz reflects on one of the great mysteries of every person’s life. The suffering, especially the suffering of the innocent, is the only serious objection to the existence of a good and compassionate God. It always represents a serious problem for those who welcome the face of the Father that Jesus revealed to us. Why do we suffer? What is the pain for? This essay reflects, with simplicity, on suffering, questioning the Word of God, without wanting to give an exhaustive answer the Bible itself does not offer. In this intense and profound volume Paolo Curtaz, one of the most appreciated and original spiritual authors of the last years, brings in personal and other people's stories marked by pain, without any pretense of giving easy answers, but with the desire to follow the few traces of light that emerge from biblical reflection and from his own experience: someone who passed through suffering managing to see a perspective of hope.

Paolo Curtaz (Aosta, 1965) is a theologian and a biblical scholar. He is considered as one of the most interesting spiritual authors of our time.
