ANSWERING THE TOUGHEST QUESTIONS ABOUT SUFFERING AND EVIL
By Bruce Bickel & Stan Jantz
Many times, we hear the question, If God created everything. Did He create evil, or Why do good people suffer? These question plus other are tackled by the authors of this book. They don’t pretend to have all the answers but they will wrestle with it and offer some sound advice from the scriptures and other Christian writers.
The book is divided into ten sections, each dealing with a particular question about God, evil, and why certain things happen. They include did God create evil, why is there suffering, why doesn’t God eliminate suffering, why the violence in the Bible, and more questions that have been asked by many people. They divide the sections into separate questions, each section covers many questions concerning the subject of that section. The answer the authors write are based on the scriptures and will help you to have better understanding of the questions. Each question and answer has an example that someone has faced and include questions for you to answer. In my opinion there are some answers that we may not fully receive or understand until we finally come face to face with God, but this book is a definite help.
A quote from the back of the book, “There is no shame in asking—after all, even some of the greatest men and women in the Bible has doubts. Don’t let your questions go unanswered. What you find might just change your life.”
The book would make a great Bible study or book to use in a discussion group.
