Why does God permit the great suffering and evil that we see in our world? This book explores this question in the context of the mystery of the Trinity. God’s permission of evil and the way in which suffering can lead human persons into the life of the Trinity are discussed in dialogue with Hans Urs von Balthasar. In the light of Balthasar’s model of the Trinity as divine self-giving love, we gain a profound grasp of the nature of suffering in human life by placing our suffering in the context of the divine life of the Triune God.
