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.
Based on the book If God Is Good, this is a concise treatment of the subjects in If God Is Good, including bonus material not in the original. Though it follows the progression of topics and argument in the original, The Goodness of God truly is the heart-and-soul audio book both for believers and non-believers. Explores the basic issues that suffering and evil pose regarding the existence of God and the goodness of God.
A good apologetics handbook; a convenient overview of tough issues and answers in an attractive gift package. Works as a stand-alone. Good preliminary audio book to listen to before the original If God Is Good. Most of all, The Goodness of God offers hope and assurance to people in personal times of suffering.
A concise, easy-to-listen-to exploration of the problems of suffering and evil and how God's goodness shines through all circumstances.
