I return again and again to The Problem of Pain and A Grief Observed, though the latter is so raw, there are times I can barely read it. Lewis knew pain, and he didn’t put suffering in a theological box. Instead he left room for it to expand to its full reality and showed how even at its greatest, God’s reach was infinitely more.

A second-degree black belt in taekwondo, Natalie spins her sword and writes from her native Houston. She is married to an accountant who’s more well-read than she is, and raising a son who loves reading even more than she does.
