People often as why God allows suffering. This title presents some thought-provoking and original answers to this question.

He later studied at the University of Adelaide, where he majored in history, literature and education, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts with honours and a Diploma in Education. While working as a secondary school teacher, he studied for a Bachelor of Divinity degree through the Melbourne College of Divinity. He later completed a Doctor of Ministry degree from Luther Rice Seminary, Florida, USA, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Macquarie University, New South Wales (2000).
In 1962, he was ordained as a minister in the CRC Churches International.
