Description:

Perfect Paperback. 316 pages. Dimensions: 8.1in. x 5.2in. x 0.7in.How can God allow such a terrible thing Why does a good God allow pain and suffering The question of suffering in our world has been of perennial interest. There have been many intellectual efforts at addressing this knotty problem, but few have satisfied. The problem of evil strikes close to home for everyone, but there have been few fulfilling answers. Some cannot reconcile evil in a world made by a loving God. In the normal course of life, people get bombarded by horrid events, in the world and to themselves. In Heavens Sake, Nathan Werner explores the concept of a good God allowing pain and suffering in our personal lives and the public domain. He proposes that two apparent contradictions, the presence of pain and the goodness of God, are not incompatible. Through a philosophical look at scripture and philosophy Nathan shows that in fact a loving God will use pain to our benefit. God is good, he is omnipotent, he is caring about our condition, and he uses trying circumstances to make us stronger. How God does this is the challenge Nathan addresses and plumbs new depths of understanding as to the purpose of pain. This item ships from multiple locations.
