‘The End Of Suffering’ — A Book of Faith and Hope Shows Jesus Gives to People Who Suffer
MARYKNOLL, N.Y., June 3, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — From “The New York Times” bestselling author of the “Joshua” series and the popular novel “The Homeless Bishop,” Father Joseph F. Girzone now has written “The End of Suffering,” a book about hope and inspiration for everyone who has experienced the pain of suffering.
Filled with true stories, “The End of Suffering” offers practical wisdom for anyone who suffers from guilt, loneliness, physical pain, abuse, loss, low self-esteem, anxieties and fear. The book helps people come to terms with suffering and tries to answer such questions as: Does suffering have any purpose? What can we learn from it? What does Jesus teach us and how can we let God help transcend suffering?
Father Girzone, a retired priest, explores the presence of suffering in his life and in his pastoral ministry. Speaking from his heart with gentleness and conviction, he shares stories of pain and loss, of personal tragedy and social distress, and of hope and transformation. Father Girzone leads the reader through thickets of endless challenges related to suffering, and he shows how Jesus always is present.
