Every one of us will experience suffering. Many of us are experiencing it now. As we have seen in recent years, evil is real in our world, present and close to each one of us. In such difficult times, suffering and evil beg questions about God--Why would an all-good and all-powerful God create a world full of evil and suffering? And then, how can there be a God if suffering and evil exist? These are ancient questions, but also modern ones as well. Atheists such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and even former believers like Bart Ehrman answer the question simply: The existence of suffering and evil proves there is no God. In this captivating new book, best-selling author Randy Alcorn challenges the logic of disbelief, and brings a fresh, realistic, and thoroughly biblical insight to the issues these important questions raise. Alcorn offers insights from his conversations with men and women whose lives have been torn apart by suffering, and yet whose faith in God burns brighter than ever. He reveals the big picture of who God is and what God is doing in the world–now and forever. And he equips you to share your faith more clearly and genuinely in this world of pain and fear. "As he did in his best-selling book, Heaven, Randy Alcorn delves deep into a profound subject, and through compelling stories, provocative questions and answers, and keen biblical understanding, he brings assurance and hope to all." -Publishers Weekly

The encouragement we crave—when we’re most in need Out of the deepest hurts of the human condition, Randy Alcorn brings into clear focus our most pressing questions about evil and suffering—including those that wrench our souls when we or someone we love is victimized by evil or assaulted by disease. He faces these questions with seasoned sensitivity, skillful insight, and a heart of compassion. He dodges none of the difficulties, and never lapses into platitudes, hand-wringing, or oversimplification. On this troubling but inescapable topic, you’ll find frank acknowledgment of the inherent limitations that set humanity apart from the God who has none. There’s also generous, real encouragement that brings God nearer in our understanding when we need His comfort the most. And amid our heavy doubts and swirling confusion on this topic, Randy Alcorn points us ultimately toward Jesus as “the only answer bigger than the questions.”

In these troubled times, people are asking very difficult questions about God and their faith: If I suffer, does that mean I deserve it? Why do innocent people, especially children, die tragically? How can God be so cruel? Does God ever intervene during times of trouble? Who really runs the world-God or man? Do my prayers do any good? Why does God allow sickness, torture and evil to exist? Benjamin Blech admits, the answers are not simple. There is no one-size-fits-all explanation. Indeed, not only are there many answers, but in different situations several explanations may apply. Blech wrote this book as an intellectual analysis of Jewish wisdom on the subject of suffering. His theories are the fruit of thousands of years of debate, examination and struggle. Jewish wisdom teaches that there are rich and inspiring answers to the ultimate question: If God is good, why is the world so bad? Take part in the most important spiritual journey of all-the quest for serenity in the face of adversity-and discover that in the accumulated wisdom of the ages lies a time-tested solution for turning despair into hope and sorrow into faith.

We look at our television, computers, tablets, cell phones, watching in horror as terrorist are beheading little children, dictators slaughtering tens of thousands of their own people, burying them in mass graves. We read in newspapers and on blogs of child slavery that affects millions of children, school shootings, diseases that claim tens of millions through horrific deaths. Every day a friend is telling us crimes such as murder and rape that have taken place. Then, we think of historical persons like Hitler who killed over six millions Jewish persons, as well as hundreds of thousands of Christians, we can only ask but one question. IF GOD IS GOOD, Why Does God Allow Suffering? Are we not tired of the books on this subject offering philosophical arguments, theological ramblings that would take a Ph.D. to understand them? Many have found no satisfactory answer. Therefore, they have lost faith in God. Andrews offers his readers very straightforward, biblically accurate explanations for these difficult questions. Why does God allow suffering, why is life so unfair? Does God step in and solve every problem because we are faithful? Why do we see some Christian leaders saying God miraculously saved some young girl from cancer while hundreds of thousands of others are left to die? Does God provide absolutes or guarantees in this age of imperfect humanity? Does Satan the Devil really exist? How are we to understand divine foreknowledge and human freedom? If any have had such questions, without a doubt, they will be very interested in the Bible’s answers to these and far more in this easy to read publication.

In this book, I have consciously deliberated on the predominant question of the problem of evil and, with the help of the World Scriptures and with sound reasoning I have tried to solve this age old mystery. We are in the New Millennium. Currently, many great social transformations are taking place in our world. Most likely, these changes will help us find the true path for self-realization leading us all back to God. Therefore, I am sure this book would be of tremendous value to readers. Generally, process of regeneration is slow, it may last the whole millennium, nevertheless, it is imminent. The fact that the above said kingdom of God or “peace on earth” is the most desired objective of history, is the evidence of its being, not only non-mythical, but a realistic aspiration of God and man. Jesus, in the above Bible verse prompts us to recognize the seasons of our age.

God Is Love

While there is no substitute for personal, faithful, and careful Bible reading and prayer, the Bible’s vast size and diversity can make distilling its truth a daunting task. Thus most Christians benefit from supplemental resources to help learn and apply what Scripture teaches. Renowned theologian, Gerald Bray has produced just such a resource in his new systematic theology. Though packed with robust content, he writes about this volume: “the aim . . . is to reach those who would not normally find systematic theology appealing or even comprehensible.” This volume is unique from others in that Bray traces the common theme of God’s love through the Bible categorically—from God’s love for himself and his creation to the cross as the ultimate expression of God’s love, among other categories. The centrality of God’s love in Bray’s theology reflects a deep conviction that the Bible shows us God for who he really is. This volume will be of interest to Christians seeking to grow in their faith.
