Item description for Why Does God Allow War? by Martyn Lloyd-Jones, John MacArthur & Lane T. Dennis...
Overview During the dark days of WWII, British pastor Lloyd-Jones turned to the foundational truths of Scripture to answer the question of human conflict and suffering. His insights---as relevant today as they were then---are rooted in the reality of God and offer help and comfort for whatever uncertainty you face. 128 pages, softcover from Crossway Books.
Does God care about the sin and suffering in the world today? Why doesn't he bring an end to war and violence?
When our lives seem shattered by personal tragedy, is there any answer? Is there any place to which we can turn to find hope and peace and true happiness whatever our circumstances?
The ringing affirmation of this book is that there is indeed an answer-an answer that is rooted in the reality of God himself, and in what he has done and will do for those who know and love him.
Dr. Lloyd-Jones wrote this book at the outbreak of the Second World War to a people on the brink of despair. It's message, however, is universal and remarkably relevant today as we seek to understand the crises of our own times. Yet readers will find that the truth it contains is a help for those in the midst of any tragedy, whether personal or national.

Reviews - What do customers think about Why Does God Allow War??
A trustworthy Teacher. Mar 10, 2007
Though delivered over sixty years ago at Westminster Chapel, London, still these sermons remain as fresh and as penetrating today as when they were first given. A trustworthy teacher and reliable guide in the most difficult areas of faith, Lloyd-Jones' commitment to biblical truth as well as his remarkable understanding of God's ways in the world renders him doubly qualified to address the question: "Why does God allow War?" In addition, the origin of these sermons in the tumult of World War II, together with the testimony of many who have been helped by the Doctor's honest facing up to the problems of sin, suffering, war and evil, converge to make this small work a source of proven help and far more than a recitation of pat answers. Encouraging and God-affirming, this booklet would be a fine addition to most collections addressing the problem of suffering and evil.
Short, simple, solid. Jul 16, 2003
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones does a good job explaining (biblically) why God allows suffering, and in particular why God allows war. This book was not written to answer sceptics, but rather to answer from scripture those who love God, and sincerely want to understand why God allows war.
I thought this book did a great job answering the question.
