Books About Suffering

Books About Suffering
Some people have asked me what books were the most helpful in giving me a good understanding on the topic of suffering. Over the past few years I’ve read various material on this topic. This helped fuel a lot of the inspiration and thought behind the lyrics for The Suffering Servant album. I wanted to inform everyone of which books were the most helpful for me on my studies on this particular concept. Here are the ten books that were the most helpful to me. I recommend that you read these ones if you want to study the topic of suffering.
