Item description for Why Do People Suffer? (Questions of Faith) by James Jones...
Overview With sensitivity and candor, Jones helps readers think through the issues clearly, and offers reliable hope in a God who understands and shares our suffering.
"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.
