Life isnt fair! Terrorist bombings. Ethnic cleansing. Body-ravaging diseases. Murder. Child abuse. Natural disasters. Genetic maladies. These travesties, global and seemingly relentless, drive us to the limits of our reasoning. We attempt to garner some comfort from the worn out but inaccurate clich: God is in control. When pain and suffering invade our well-laid plans for a good life, we ask the gut questions: Why, God, why? Why do You allow this? Why dont You do something? What kind of God are You?

With humility, gentleness, and candor, Harold Eberle helps us reassemble our thoughts about suffering and pain. He offers the framework of truth that guides us to an anchoring belief that God is good. This book evaluates the role God plays in the Earth, explores the origin of suffering, and reassures us of Gods kind intentions toward us.

If your heart echoes the Why, God, Why? questions of life, this book will get you well on your way to the answer: Bad things happen and, yes, God is good!
