Willibert  Pauels - Laughing, Suffering, Love of Life


Humour is a manifestation of religion

When faced by the hypothesis of many atheists that educated people must be sick in the head to still believe in God, Willibert Pauels wonders, "Am I crazy? Why can't I stop believing in God?" This is the question he examines in Laughing, Suffering, Love of Life. The main focus is on the really big questions like: "Does God exists? If so why does He allow all the suffering in the world? What about death?"

Pauels addresses these issues in his familiar easygoing way. He is less concerned with studies, statistics and stringent arguments, but rather with what has had a hold of him since his childhood: the experience of a longing for God, knowledge of the feeling that God is close and also that God is distant.
