If God is Good ~ by Randy Alcorn

If God is Good: Faith in the Midst of Suffering and Evil is the latest book by Best-Selling Author Randy Alcorn. Most of us have had why questions. Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do the innocent suffer? Why is this happening, more specifically, why is this happening to me? Alcorn addresses evil and suffering in great detail in this book.

To be honest, I haven’t yet read it. It’s the first time I haven’t met a deadline with a book/blog tour. I really do want to read it. Sort of. But while my own wounds from my latest miscarriage have begun to heal, they are still in the early stages of healing. I’m not sure I want to pick at them just yet. However, it really does look good. And deep ~ very deep. This is not a book to be read lightly, or to be skimmed over. If one is to really extract the nuggets of truth and wisdom that I’m certain are in it, then it must be read, and absorbed slowly. And I look forward to doing that ~ soon.


If God Is Good
By Randy Alcorn

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.
