Paul Mallard tell us that firstly, we have to come to recognise the sheer magnitude and awful intensity of pain that exists in the world. We are surrounded by pain, and the only condition for suffering it is to live long enough to experience it. Suffering is one of the most consistent themes of the Bible. We live in a fallen, broken, bleeding world.
Amos talks with Paul, who is serving in Chad, using Bible stories to teach English to young men.
