For those times when we’re wounded by broken trust, assaulted by disease, or victimized by evil—or when we’re crushed to see such things happen to people we love—Randy Alcorn offers something solid to hold on to. In this specially focused condensation of Alcorn’s If God Is Good: Faith in the Midst of Suffering and Evil, we’re continually guided into a deeper glimpse of God’s loving ways and higher purposes—the very things we’re often most blinded to whenever we battle pain and anguish. Alcorn avoids superficial or sentimental responses, and instead presses forward boldly to explore all the troubling doubts and questions that agitate within us when we confront suffering and evil. The issues are far from simple, the answers far from easy—but Alcorn shows how the way of suffering—a path that Jesus himself followed more than anyone else—can ultimately become a journey into wholeness and even logic-defying joy.
Bestselling author Randy Alcorn is the founder and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries.

Debra4 Stars Out Of 5September 5, 2010DebraLately, I've struggled some with how to answer questions about evil and suffering. The Goodness of God by Randy Alcorn was a great answer.Although it is a fairly short audio book (3.5 hours), it was not a quick listen. I found I needed to listen to one chapter at a time, and usually listen to it twice. Alcorn gets into so many aspects of why evil exists, and while I did not agree with everything he said, much of what he said really did resonate with me. Some of his illustrations were fantastic. And, wow, did it ever make me think!Anyone who struggles with the "how could God allow this?" questions in their life should read this. And that is probably nearly everyone. Because, as Alcorn mentions in the introduction, the question of why there is pain and suffering in this world is the question, not just a question. I plan to listen to this book straight through again. Excellent book.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this audiobook free from Oasis Audio as part of their Review Program.
