Bruce is often been asked to talk about the issue of suffering because of his extensive experience of suffering in its deepest and most visceral form with dying patients and in disaster zones.
For those who are dying, or who have a loved one who is dying, he wrote a widely shared newspaper article entitled ‘The Good Side of Dying’ and another journal article on the experience of excruciating pain.
For those who struggle with the spiritual and practical issues around suffering and faith, Bruce recently wrote a book entitled ‘BEHIND THE TEARS – Understanding, Surviving and Growing from Suffering’ to guide and help others in this area.
