The Problem of pain

In his book “The Problem of Pain,” C.S. Lewis argues that pain is, in many respects, the very language God uses to get our attention and bring us to Him.

“God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world,” writes Lewis, widely regarded as the 20th century’s foremost Christian apologist. “No doubt pain as God’s megaphone is a terrible instrument; it may lead to final and unrepented rebellion. But it gives the only opportunity the bad man can have for amendment. It removes the veil; it plants the flag of truth within the fortress of the rebel soul.”
