A philosophical approach to a time when life was new and full of potential, “Origins and Suffering” will motivate readers to consider the choices and events in history that have contributed to the world we live in today.

Humans have pondered the meaning of our existence for years, philosophizing on existential questions such as “do my choices and actions matter?” and “what’s happened in the world that has caused so much suffering?”. Author Jim Szana connects those questions to biblical answers in “Origins and Suffering,” an imaginative retelling of the story of Genesis filled with reflections on the meaning of life.
Depicting a compelling tale of good versus evil, God and Lucifer’s interactions in the book demonstrate the events that created the world and brought upon suffering to it. Paired with Szana’s personal narrative and anecdotes, this connection between the past and present creates a newfound understanding of our world.
Szana wrote this book with a universal message in mind and hopes his writing helps readers make sense of the world around them. “I have always maintained we should know what we believe. It was time for me to write my view of what is taking place in the universe in which we live,” he said.
Kirkus Reviews praises “Origins and Suffering”: “Szana is a creative writer who takes license with theology and biblical authenticity but who skillfully places his own self squarely into the narrative in order to personalize his work.”
A philosophical approach to a time when life was new and full of potential, “Origins and Suffering” will motivate readers to consider the choices and events in history that have contributed to the world we live in today. Any reader looking for a fascinating rendition of the story of earth’s creation will thoroughly enjoy the read.
