You've heard answers to the question of why evil exists, but never one like this.
Simple answers aren't enough to ease the deep, nagging questions of faith. When you're in pain, you can't help but ask God, "Why?" Why does an all-powerful, all-loving God allow evil and suffering? Why did he create a world he knew was destined to fall?
There is purpose in the pain, and it's not just to develop you into a hardier person, says Chris Tiegreen. In fact, God's reasons may be more about his character than about yours. It's all about a God whose unlimited essence, such as mercy, redemption, and forgiveness, can be known and expressed only in an imperfect world. The Bible gives many hints as to why a suffering world makes sense. This groundbreaking book helps you explore those reasons to more fully understand God's plan.
Did you know that the number one objection among skeptics and the number one reason for doubt among believers is the problem of suffering? Why did an all-powerful, all-loving God create a world that he knew was destined to fall? What's in it for him? Why does he let us struggle? Christians and skeptics alike share these concerns. This unique book reveals that there is a point to suffering--and it isn't about us, our pain, or our confusion. Though they are hard to bear, pain and suffering make sense when we consider what they reveal about God--his mercy, forgiveness, and healing can only be known in an imperfect world. Filling a void in Christian literature, Why a Suffering World Makes Sense encourages readers to let God's hidden attributes be revealed in their pain, thereby helping them unravel the mystery of who God really is.
Groundbreaking insight into the problem of evil that will encourage Christians to let God display himself in their trials.
