If God is Good – Randy Alcorn

blog1Randy Alcorn is my favorite Christian fiction author.

He is quickly becoming a world-class theologian as well.  

You know those questions that niggle in the back of your head, and you hope nobody asks you?

  • Why is there evil in the world?
  • Why does God allow suffering?
  • What’s with a good God sending people to Hell? 
  • What about senseless evil?  If God is all powerful, why doesn’t He stop it?
  • How can life make sense in light of all this guck in my life?

Randy Alcorn has written If God is Good to answer all these questions and many more in language that average people like you and I can understand. 

I was talking to someone recently who is having a real and honest faith crisis – one of those that is good for young people to have.  Many of her arguments came out of the mouths of her atheists friends.  Interestingly, the arguments weren’t  any different than when I had similar faith crises, but they now have a chorus.  Randy addresses all of these cries of the heart with a compassion and love that makes this book a true treasure.

I am seriously not good at reading theological tomes.  If God is Good is just about the deepest theological book I’ve read in years, but it isn’t heavy – Randy will delve into a theological topic by starting with a representative story, explain the topic, and give good reader relief with appropriate supportive real-life and/or biblical examples.

If you want to get If God is Good, you can find it at the publisher.  In addition, if you want to learn more about Randy Alcorn, check out his website.
