Item description for Where Is God When Things Go Wrong? by John Blanchard...
Overview We live in what has been called 'a world with ragged edges'. Earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis, fires, famine and other natural disasters kill millions of people and injure countless others, sometimes wiping out huge numbers within a few hours. Every day, accidents claim an untold number of victims. Planes crash, trains are derailed, road vehicles collide, ships are lost at sea, buildings collapse, bridges give way, trees fall, machinery malfunctions. To make mattes worse, disease cuts relentless swathes through humankind, causing immeasurable weakness, pain and fear, while 'man's inhumanity to man' brings a terrible toll of suffering. Yet the Bible claims that God is in sole and sovereign control of everything that happens in the entire universe, that he 'works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will' and that he is 'compassionate and gracious' and 'abounding in love'.
Community Description This 40-page illustrated booklet gets to grips with one of the most frequently-asked questions in the world today: How can there be an all-loving, all-powerful God when there is so much evil and suffering in the world? The appalling death-toll following the earthquakes and tsunamis in south-east Asia left millions of people confused and uncertain, while for others it destroyed the last vestige of faith.
Where is God when things go wrong? tackles the issue head-on. It lays out in detail "the case against God", shows the terrible void that results from leaving God out of the picture, then gives a clear presentation of the biblical response to the question.
