Wandering in Darkness: Narrative and the Problem of SufferingEleonore StumpOxford University Press / 2010 / Hardcover$137.50
Without brushing aside the serious problems posed by a God who allows incurable diseases, natural disasters and senseless crimes to bring misery into our lives, Stackhouse boldly affirms that this world is the world we actually need. Finally, he points to Christian revelation which promises the transformation of suffering into joy as the best guide to God's dealings with the world.
"This is the best book in accessible English on how to think about the problem of evil. One of the finest theologians in North America, Stackhouse brings to bear insights from Scripture, philosophy and theology on this age-old dilemma. I recommend this first to anyone asking how a good and powerful God can permit radical evil."
"John Stackhouse . . . [addresses] the problem of evil with theological sophistication, historical depth, and philosophical precision."
"John Stackhouse . . . reduces the tangled issue to one fundamental question--Is God trustworthy?--and offers a careful, wise and well-argued answer."
