If God exists and really is a God of love, then why doesn't he stop the suffering and problems in our world?
People ask this question, often in the wake of major tragedies. Glib answers don't help.
While investigating the answers, Roger Carswell is realistic enough to admit that there are things God reveals to us, and things he doesn't reveal. He argues that the starting point is to find out who God is, and to figure out if he can be trusted - even if we don't have all the answers.
The author's own experience of suffering with depression, and the real-life stories that are included, make this a compassionate and encouraging look at one of the toughest questions about the Christian faith. Without dodging or dismissing the issues, Where is God ina messed-up World? shows that our questioning need not be a barrier to entrusting ourselves to God.
"God has not only been faithful to me, he has been overwhelmingly kind, incredibly merciful, consistently good and unbelievably patient," says Roger.
Roger Carswell was a secondary school teacher. For 25 years he has worked full-time speaking to students and adults about the believability of the Christian faith and it's relevance to the modern world. He has written eleven books including And Some Evangelists, Where Is God in a Messed-up World? and Why Believe?
