Biblical, pastoral response to the thorny problem of God and human suffering.Tsunamis, earthquakes, famines, diseases, wars these and other devastating catastrophes lead Christians to ask painful questions. Is God all-powerful? Is God good? If so, how can God allow so much human suffering?
These questions, taken together, have been called the theodicy problem, and in this book Thomas Long explores what preachers can and should say in response. Long reviews the origins and history of the theodicy problem and engages the work of other thinkers who have posed solutions to it. Cautioning pastors not to ignore urgent theodicy-related questions arising from their parishioners, he offers biblically based approaches to preaching on theodicy, guided by Jesus parable of the wheat and the tares and the greatest theodicy text in Scripture the book of Job.
