Publisher's Description

"It is remarkable that in a world of such dreadful suffering so many people should persist in believing in a good and loving God. It is in spite of the evil, and not because of it, that people hold on to such a faith. The fact of suffering is the strongest and the loudest argument against there being a God at all."

Why does a God of love allow such evil in the world? Did God make evil? What sort of God would create a world of pain and suffering? Why doesn’t he do something to help us? It is questions such as these that make believing in God so difficult for many people, and not just for those who are suffering at the time, Why do People Suffer? addresses these questions with sensitivity and candor, helping the reader to think through the issues and offering hope in a God who understands and shares in our suffering.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

"This present volume is not a scholarly treatise on the problem of evil, but rather a short work, with numerous photographs and side bars containing quotations from Scripture and various scholars opining on the matter of evil, suffering, and the Christian understanding of such matters. The book would be suitable for the non-scholarly reader who seeks a good introduction to the awful reality of human suffering and the persistence of evil in the world. It would be an ideal choice for older Sunday school students and home-schooled youth."
Criswell Theological Review

    This book is wonderful : it answers every single question anybody can have regarding pain, hurt, suffering of others or of our own. The design is visually attractive and the whole book is user friendly : you can read it from page to page or use it as a reference book. Mature christians, new christians, seekers & unbelievers will like it. Too good to be true !

    This is the best book I have found on this subject. In a firm but gentle way it discusses the fact of evil in the world (which we all must deal with), and that bad things happen to each of us. Using choice scriptures, it points the way to God's love for our answers. I have given copies of it as gifts, to several people. They have all thanked me profusely. Definitely a "keeper" and a book to share.
