Where Did Evil Come From? And Why Doesn't God Do Something About It?
The problem of evil is perhaps the most difficult question the Christian must face. If God is good and all-powerful, why is there suffering in the world? Can't God put an end to murder, rape, and starvation? What about earthquakes, hurricanes, and tsunamis? Why couldn't a perfect God have made a perfect world?
In this concise but thorough book, Dr. Norman Geisler carefully answers these tough questions, using step-by-step explanations and compelling examples. He walks the reader through time-tested answers but also provides a new approach revolving around whether or not this world is the "best of all possible worlds." All this adds up to comforting news for believers: we can rest assured that God is both loving and all-powerful.
"Solid, insightful answers to difficult and intriguing questions that only Geisler could do. A must-read."
- Josh D. McDowell, Author/speaker, Campus Crusade for Christ
"This is one of the clearest, most comprehensive, and penetrating presentations on one of the most difficult problems that thinking Christians face."
- Ravi Zacharias, bestselling author and president of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries
"This is classic Geisler-brilliant, incisive, succinct, convincing. He is one of the great defenders of Christianity."
- Lee Strobel, author, The Case for Christ and The Case for the Real Jesus
"For more than five decades, Norm Geisler has been an incredible blessing to the church, addressing and treating virtually every major issue in the philosophy of religion. In this volume, he wades into one of his favorite subjects - the problem of evil. He faces squarely the major objections from a variety of angles and provides a wide range of concise responses that are both profound and satisfying. Readers will encounter countless gems that make this volume a real treasure. I recommend it highly."
- Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University and Theological Seminary
Bestselling author and apologist takes on one of the most difficult questions Christians face. How can an omnipotent, loving God preside over a world filled with evil and suffering? The author's approach is concise, systematic, and clearly communicated, just what Geisler fans have grown to expect. In addition to relying on time-tested solutions to the problem of evil, the author also presents a compelling new way to think about this puzzle.
