In a world riddled with disappointment, Tsunamis, earthquakes, famines, diseases, wars, what rationale do we have for believing in a benevolent God?—these and other devastating catastrophes lead Christians to ask these painful questions.Is God all-powerful? Is God good? And if both are true, how can God allow so much human suffering? OH GREAT GOD! is an attempt to stand with believers in thinking through how faith in a loving God holds together with the facts of life in a suffering world. Astutely interfacing phenomenology with revelation, this book at once addresses those skeptical of Christian faith and those who use their Christian faith to rationalize senseless human suffering. It calls both to recognize in the worst catastrophes not the providential will of God but rather the ongoing struggle between the rebellious powers that enslave the world and the God who loves it wholly.
