Publisher's Summary

Every one of us will experience suffering. Many of us are experiencing it now. As we have seen in recent years, evil is real in our world, present and close to each one of us.

In such difficult times, suffering and evil beg questions about God. Why would an all-good and all-powerful God create a world full of evil and suffering? And then, how can there be a God if suffering and evil exist?

These are ancient questions, but also modern ones as well. Atheists such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and even former believers like Bart Ehrman answer the question simply: The existence of suffering and evil proves there is no God.

In this captivating new book, best-selling author Randy Alcorn challenges the logic of disbelief, and brings a fresh, realistic, and thoroughly biblical insight to the issues these important questions raise.

Alcorn offers insights from his conversations with men and women whose lives have been torn apart by suffering, and yet whose faith in God burns brighter than ever. He reveals the big picture of who God is and what God is doing in the world, now and forever. And he equips you to share your faith more clearly and genuinely in this world of pain and fear.

As he did in his best-selling book, Heaven, Randy Alcorn delves deep into a profound subject, and through compelling stories, provocative questions and answers, and keen biblical understanding, he brings assurance and hope to all.

A must read!

This book is a must read for those of us who at one time or another questioned the God of the bible on His goodness and mercy. In my opinion Randy more than covers this question. I was very satisfied with the explanations and many examples of reconciling God's love,grace and mercy in light of the world in which we now live.

Like a healing balm on the suffering spirit

Next to C.S. Lewis' The Problem of Pain, Randy Alcorn's book, If God Is Good Faith in the Midst of Suffering and Evil offers healing support to those who are in the midst of crisis and suffering. It is great for those who are in the midst of it and those who will be in the midst of it because we know that Jesus said "In this world you will have trouble, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world". Difficult times are certain, as the sparks fly upward, but knowing that God does work all things together for our good and His glory is a comforting truth to hold onto in dark times. I have listened to this book and will continue to listen to it over and over again. It's a great companion to bible reading and devotions. I would encourage anyone who is going through a difficult time to listen and hold on to these truths and the passages that Randy breaks down for us. Thank you Randy Alcorn for this blessing. Keep on writing Randy Alcorn!!!

uncompromising

The universality of the topic and uncompromising explanations and views have increased my faith and established the fact that I don't have to defend God. He's big enough to handle all questions.

Cleared up issues and topics rumbling through my mind for 50 years! Could easily write a 50 page 5 star detailed positive reviews. This is a bona fide MUST READ.
