Excellent study on the theology of suffering and hope. I cannot live without this - personally and professionally. Schillebeeckx sought his theological foundation on suffering and hope in Paul\'s epistle to the Hebrews and the first epistle of Peter. I like the fact that Schillebeeckx emphasizes on the importance of solidarity in suffering - thus, put the concept of communion as priority in healing. And, establishing and maintaining this communion is critical and essential in pastoral care. He also points out a failure of solely relying on reasons (failure of enlightenment - sorry, Kant!) as his analysis of anamnesis proves that we cannot save ourselves.
