Description - Unspeakable by Os Guinness
There are no words to express the pain, anguish, and despair that sear the human heart in the face of suffering. From wars to car accidents, birth defects to genocide, the realities of life on earth are sometimes...unspeakable. Yet, no matter how hard we try to avoid or ignore these tragedies, they are facts of life that we must face. In "Unspeakable", now available in paperback, leading public intellectual Os Guinness guides us through an exploration of evil and suffering, seeking to illuminate the nagging questions of the inhumanity of humanity as well as the place of God in human suffering. This honest and thoughtful exploration provides a roadmap to help us think through evil intelligently and respond to it courageously.
