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.

    " This book was sent to me as a gift by someone I knew many years ago. His wife is Mr. Alcorn's editor. It is a lengthy book but worth every page. It explains the reasons, that may not be known to us at present, why there is suffering in this world. All things work for good in the will and plan of God. I highly suggest this book to all Christians and to those that may be in the midst of suffering and wondering "why?" "

    " Life is hard, God is good. In light of that how do I live my life? Alcorn's book is long but it's so good that I plowed through most of it. I haven't seen anything as comprehensive and readable on this subject as this book. Definitely worth reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patty | 9/3/2013

    " I ended up mostly skimming through as it summarizes and restates the same old arguments. Evil and suffering exist as part of a bigger plan we just don't understand, and there is a better world out there somewhere. This can be comforting but still leaves me dissatisfied. "
