Publisher's Description

If we are honest, we have to admit that there are many things we don’t understand about God, especially in the face of terrible suffering and evil. Chris Wright offers reflections and encouragement from the Scriptures, so that those who are troubled by these tough questions can still sustain their faith.

Publisher's Weekly

Why do people suffer? Why is the God of the Hebrew Bible so capricious? How can we make sense of Jesus Christ's suffering on the cross and the meaning of a redemption won through such a violent act? Does the end of the world represent the end of time, space, and history? Wright, an internationally known theologian, author and educator, attempts to answer these questions as he honestly grapples with his lack of understanding of much of God's activity in this rather workmanlike book. He observes that the Bible is chock full of examples of individuals struggling to understand God's role in their lives, from Sarah's attempt to come to terms with her barrenness to the Psalmist's anguished cry of long-suffering, "How long, O Lord?" Regrettably, Wright's sometimes forceful questions lose their strength as he takes refuge in the simplistic conclusion that God is always big enough to absorb our doubts. In the end, Wright is not confident enough to step out of his comfort zone and to examine a broader range of perspectives on these questions. (Jan.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
