Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

Melvin Tinker

$9.99

Paperback
Why is doing good no guarantee of an easy life? One of the most common objections to the Christian Faith is 'If God created the universe, and is still in control of it, then Why does he allow suffering and injustice?' Melvin Tinker considers the different opinions people have before investigating the biblical answers about a crucial topic that needs to be faced by an evangelistic church. He looks at the situations biblical characters faced, the opposition to Jesus himself, and the suffering of the early church. This book provides the key factors behind the benefit and purpose of suffering. What is excellent about this book as it doesn't enter into speculation about philosophical theories but undergirds an understanding of suffering by careful consideration of Biblical passages such as four chapters on Job, Psalm42, 73; Luke 13:1-5; 1 Peter 4:12-19, and Revelation 5.
