The Problem of God is written by a skeptic who became a Christian and then a pastor, all while exploring answers to the most difficult questions raised against Christianity. Growing up in an atheistic home, Mark Clark struggled through his parents' divorce, acquiring Tourette syndrome and OCD in his teen years. After his father's death, he began a skeptical search for truth through science, philosophy, and history, eventually finding answers in Christianity.
In a disarming, winsome, and persuasive way, The Problem of God responds to the top ten God questions of our present age, including:
- Does God even exist?
- What do we do with Christianity's violent history?
- Is Jesus just another myth?
- Can the Bible be trusted?
- Why should we believe in Hell anymore today?
The book concludes with Christianity's most audacious assertion: how should we respond to Jesus' claim that he is God and the only way to salvation.
Mark Clark is the founding pastor of Village Church in Vancouver, Canada. Starting in 2010 out of a school gym, it is now one of the fastest growing multi-site churches in North America. Mark combines frank and challenging biblical preaching with real-world applications and apologetics to speak to Christians and skeptics, confronting questions, doubts, and assumptions about Christianity.
Nelson4 Stars Out Of 5Comments on "The Problem of God: Answering the Skeptic's Challenges to Christianity"October 24, 2017NelsonQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Overall a good book addressing important objections and I would recommend it with one caveat: I think the section in chapter 3 entitled "Are there contradictions between the Old and New Testaments" misinterprets Jeremiah to point to the current (AD 30 to present and beyond) and not the second coming when God will change our natures. Furthermore it also ignores Jesus' statement in Mathew that nothing will change in the Law and the Prophets until the Son of Man returns in his glory (second coming). I would further suggest that the reference to the unclean animals in Acts 10 is to illustrate to Peter that Cornelius, an unclean Roman, is to be accepted as a follower of the way expanding on his charge from Jesus to take the Word to the Jews.
In Chapter 10, Four Push Backs: the statement is made that Christians changed the Sabbath to Sunday. The change of the worship day to Sunday was done by the emperor Constantine in AD 313 or 321 depending on the source you read, to coincide with the pagan worship of the sun god and confirmed by the Roman Papacy at the Council of Laodicea in A.D. 364. There is no statement in the Bible that supports that change.
A forensic analysis of the crucifixion is presented in a paper: "On the Physical Death of Jesus Christ" by William D. Edwards, MD; Wesley J. Gabel, MDiv; Floyd E. Hosmer, MS, AMI. JAMA March 21, 1986.Vol 255, No. 11. This really makes the point emphatically that He died on the cross!
Another excellent resource is the book: "The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus" by Gary R. Habermas & Michael R. Licona. Kregel Publications, which presents the historical accuracy of the Resurrection story by reference to non-Christian authors from that time period.
