"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.
James Jones has been Bishop of Liverpool, England, since 1998 and was previously Bishop of Hull. He is a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4's 'Thought for the Day' and has written several books on Christian themes. He is very involved in urban regeneration and environmental issues.

MaryB5 Stars Out Of 5September 29, 2008MaryBThis 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.
