Why Is There Suffering?

Why is there suffering? When pain, suffering, grief, and loss happen all of us — whatever we believe (or don’t believe) — are forced to ask some tough questions. In this Short Answers film, Solas Director Andy Bannister addresses what the message of Jesus has to say about pain and suffering — and shows that unlike atheism, only Christianity can offer real hope, real answers, and real meaning when suffering strikes.
