Publisher's Summary

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.

Perhaps The Most Important Christian Book In Print

Randy Alcorn has tackled the toughest challenge believers will ever face: How to defend the idea that a good God could and does permit evil to flourish. Believers may read this book for spiritual growth. Unbelievers may read it for intellectual stimulation. I am reading it to help make sense of the viciously painful, chronically disabling illness with which I have unexpectedly been stricken. My illness defies diagnosis and is probably incurable but it has driven me to this book and this book has been tremendously helpful in transforming my contingent faith into a transcendent faith. I am beginning to see that transformation as far more valuable than the restoration of my health. Healing won't help me deal with the next calamity which comes my way. God's Word, elucidated by this book, will and is.

Highly Recommend for people wanting to get closer

This book has changed my life, a lot of my views were distorted and plain wrong. This book helped me figure out who god is and what he wants. If someone is looking for answers to all the hard questions whether you like them or not. This is it, I will use this book as reference for the rest of my life. Besides the Bible probably the single most interesting and thought provoking book I have ever read or listened to.
