The reality of human suffering poses one of the most difficult challenges to Christianity. If God is absolutely powerful and ultimately good, evil would be banished. Instead, He appears too frail to oppose it or too sinister to care, and no one can believe in a God like that.What is evil and where did it come from? Why does God allow it and what is He doing about it? Greg answers these questions and shows that only the Christian world view is capable of offering a satisfying answer to the problem of evil. You’ll also learn why the presence of evil in the world is one of the best proofs for the existence of God, not against Him.
