Title: The Art of Suffering and the Impact of Seventeenth-century Anti-providential Thought (Ashgate New Critical Thinking in Religion, Theology & Biblical Studies)
Brand new books, dispatch from our warehouse in the UK
"The art of suffering" is one of many strands of literature on suffering published in the 16th and 17th centuries. This book explores through the art of suffering the way in which the meaning for suffering - which the 17th century inherited from the Middle Ages and which centres on the role of suffering as a manifestation of the hand of God in the process of salvation - is refined and enhanced by successive puritan writers only to crumble under the impact of emerging anti-providential thought. It goes on to explore the challenge which the absence of meaning for suffering presents to the Judaeo-Christian concept of an omnipotent and infinitely good God, and the ways in which themes and doctrines already present in the literature on suffering are reshaped and recombined to defend the omnipotence and infinite goodness of God.
