Publisher's Description

WHY DOES GOD ALLOW SO MUCH EVIL? WHY DID HE ORDER CERTAIN PEOPLE KILLED OFF? IS GOD REALLY A BULLY?

In a compelling blending of a fictional conversation between the author and a variety of seekers who meet at a local coffee shop, Littleton confronts the tough issues of the God of the Bible. As they drink their coffee and lattes, the group discusses the issues of God ordering various genocides in the Bible, the Flood, various killings, and issues like free will, the problem of evil, and why the test in the Garden of Eden.

In their search for truth, they try to understand why God gave those stories as a means of teaching humanity important things about him and the world. In the process, the group fleshes out why faith is necessary. They discover that behind these seemingly heinous biblical events is a God who reveals himself with honesty and integrity-a God who seeks to draw us closer to him.

By the end of the book, the seekers confront the biggest issue of all when one of the members of the group-so close to making a commitment to Christ-is killed in a traffic accident. How could God allow this? What answers does the Bible provide to that incident?

Publisher Description

The author and the seeker begin meeting at a local coffee shop and there others join in as they discuss the issues of God ordering various genocides in the Bible, the Flood, various murders and killings, and why free will is such an important issue. They continue discussing why faith is so necessary, and why God gave those stories as a means of teaching us important things about Him and our world. In the process, the group comes to discover that behind even the events that look so evil and dastardly in the Bible, that there are cogent and compelling answers that can draw us closer to the God who reveals himself in honesty and integrity.

By the end of the book, the seekers confront the biggest issue of all when one of the members of the group---so close to making a commitment to Christ---is killed in a traffic accident. How could God allow this? What answers does the Bible provide to that incident? Once again we explore the Bible and find that God has not only given us direct and satisfying answers to the questions, but that he has also provided a way for hope in the midst of tragedy, something no other religion really provides.
