"If God Is Good" (And He Most Definitely Is!)

One of Randy Alcorn’s best books, If God Is Good: Faith in the Midst of Suffering and Evil, is on sale at the Eternal Perspective Ministries website. I recommend the book highly…and, at this price, you would do well to order a couple more for friends and your church library.

Here’s a bit about the book taken from the EPM site.

Every one of us will experience suffering. Many of us are experiencing it now. As we have seen in recent years, evil is real in our world, present and close to each one of us. In such difficult times, suffering and evil beg questions about God—Why would an all-good and all-powerful God create a world full of evil and suffering? And then, how can there be a God if suffering and evil exist?

These are ancient questions, but also modern ones as well. Atheists such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and even former believers like Bart Ehrman answer the question simply: The existence of suffering and evil proves there is no God. In this captivating book, best-selling author Randy Alcorn challenges the logic of disbelief, and brings a fresh, realistic, and thoroughly biblical insight to the issues these important questions raise.
