The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis (unabridged) was produced by Blackstone Audio. This standalone audiobook app combines a professional audio recording with supplemental features for download-once, grab-and-go anywhere enjoyment.
For centuries, Christians have been tormented by one question above all: “If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?” Is there justice or wisdom to be won by suffering, or some reward beyond understanding? And what of the suffering of animals, which neither deserve pain nor can be improved by it? Is the quantity and variety of suffering in the world inconsistent with, or evidence against, an omnipotent and perfectly loving God?
The greatest Christian thinker of all time sets out to disentangle this knotty issue. With his signature wealth of compassion and insight, C. S. Lewis offers answers to these crucial questions and shares his hope and wisdom to help heal a world hungering for a true understanding of human nature, free will, and the will of the Divine.
This was professionally recorded at Blackstone Audio and read by Robert Whitfield, who has been awarded numerous Earphone Awards.

“Lewis succeeds in lifting the reader from his frame of reference by artfully capitulating [his] topics into a conversational tone, which makes his assertions easy to swallow and even easier to digest….The mind is expanded, God is magnified, and the reader is reminded that he is not the center of the universe….the fortune lies in Lewis’s inclination to set us straight with his charming wit and pious mind.” —Amazon.com
