What are humans to do--and how should caregivers respond--when faced with the reality of anguish? The Roots of Sorrow addresses the sometimes painful questions that surround human suffering. By integrating concrete examples with personal stories of adversity and sorrow, Phil Zylla constructs a pastoral theology that situates itself within the very core of suffering. Resisting the natural tendency to flee from the pain of sorrow, Zylla empowers professionals to help others face suffering directly and honestly.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A beautifully conceived and thoughtfully written book. Zylla's theological reflections emerge from a deep personal wrestling with the devastating realities of human suffering." --Donald Capps, Emeritus Professor of Pastoral Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary
"Phil Zylla shows a unique ability to create a tapestry that weaves together a theology of suffering with a substantive approach to pastoral care and an understanding of the actual experience of pain." --Rod Wilson, President, Regent College
"This is one of those rare volumes that is deeply grounded in the lived reality of human beings and, at the same time, offers vibrant examples of rigorous theological reflection and hope. All will learn more of the patient presence required for those who are called to minister to the afflicted." --David Hogue, Professor of Pastoral Theology and Counseling, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
" The Roots of Sorrow is as competent theologically as it is courageous pastorally. Zylla exposes the roots of sorrow with unflinching honesty, compassion, and hope. A rare book of profound and practical wisdom." --Margaret Whipp, Ripon College Cuddesdon, Oxford, UK
