"It is one thing to trust in God when life is going well, and quite another to do so when we are suffering". This is the topic Robert Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D. tackles in his book "The Light Shines on in the Darkness Transforming Suffering through Faith". He develops the idea of God allowing suffering or darkness in the world but then shows how that suffering can draw one closer to God or light, how it can help the one suffering develop compassion for others around them.

"The Light Shines on in the Darkness" delves into the false notions people have of God like the angry God, the domineering God, the terrifying God and how those notions can lead people to misinterpret the meaning and causes of suffering. Fr. Spitzer shows how to turn to the Holy Spirit for guidance through these times of suffering and how to recognize signs of the actions of the Spirit. Based on his own personal experiences, in "The Light Shines on in the Darkness" he tackles the experience of suffering which is the question that often makes people question the very existence of God.
