Format: Paperback
Neal A. Maxwell, a sufferer of cancer and a man devoted to God, struggles with issues that eventually impact all of us: why do good people suffer? Why does God sometimes appear to take away hope from those who pursue an active discipleship?
Continuing a religious dialogue begun by C. S. Lewis, Rabbi Kuchnar, and others , Maxwell argues that pain and suffering only make sense when viewed within an eternal context: suffering, loss, and pain, rather than fermenting bitterness, can indeed deepen our empathy for others, allow us a greater approach to humility, and a provide a path to strengthen discipleship. In the words of C.S.Lewis, God sometimes wishes to create a mansion from our little cottage rather than the modest remodeling that we initially anticipated.
If you, or a loved one have experienced a loss, this book is a must- it offers a message of love, comfort, and engouragement. It will deepen your understanding of your relationship to the eternal and will help you better understand your own struggles and hardships. This is one of the most impressive books I have ever read since it springs from the deep well of the author's experience and speaks to a core issue at the heart of all our lives. Neal A. Maxwell is a gift to our world, and whatever your religious or non-religious background, I think you will fine his book thought-provoking and ultimately comforting.

Format: Hardcover
The late author Neal A. Maxwell was a high-level leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints ("Mormons") for many years. Titled after guidance given to the Church's founder Joseph Smith during a difficult episode of his life, this book offers perspective on the role of suffering in our lives. Written within the LDS religious tradition, it is most accessible and useful to those who understand and believe in this perspective. Those seeking an introductory presentation of LDS belief might prefer the official LDS Church guide Gospel Principles.

Maxwell warns that understanding the role of suffering is a "hard doctrine" that requires insight into both ourselves and the nature of God. Understanding suffering as part of our mortal experience does not only require faith in God's love of us, but also in his omniscience--particularly his knowledge of how much hardship each of us individually can bear. He begins with a discussion of suffering, and proceeds through the book to explain the related purposes of chastening from others, growing, serving others, praying, and following inspired leadership.

Only some suffering do we bring upon ourselves through unwise choices in life. Maxwell identifies three other varieties that are not of our choosing. First is the suffering common to all humankind. All of us suffer the pains and inconveniences of mortal life, including ultimately death. Second, followers of Jesus Christ will suffer criticism and sometimes even stronger consequences because of the unpopularity of their religious belief.

This is a book with wonderful insights on developing the traits to become a more god-like person. Maxwell was a wonderful scholar who loved CS Lewis, and his metaphors are similarly fashioned. Really a must-read.

This is written by a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (Mormons) and it is written for members of the LDS church.
While others may get some encouragement from this book, be aware that it is directed towards Mormons.

I was going through a rough patch and my friend leant me this book. I found comfort in reading this book. Not that it made the situation any better but it gave me some thoughts and provided a method of looking at my situation differently.

I will probably pass this book on to others and reread this book at various times in my future.

This is a MUST READ for anyone experiencing pain and wants to understand WHY ME! I've had over 7 back surgeries, two knee replacements, shoulder surgery, over 80 kidney stones - along with 3 kidney surgeries and cancer with enough pain to last a life time, but I still have 20+ years to go. Neal Maxwell wrote this book in the late 1960's while he and several friends experienced pain while also fighting cancer. Is there a reason why so many of us experience pain? Neal Maxwell helped me understand that there is a reason God lets us experience pain. I wish I'd read his short, but powerful book 25 years ago after my first surgery. Pain pills are not the answer to pain. "All These Things Shall Give Thee Experience" helped give me a clearer understanding to the why of pain that daily helps me as I struggle in this life and prepare to meet God in the next. It's worth the read.
