Why do bad things happen in our lives? Why do we suffer? Is our suffering proof that God does not exist? Is God helpless to prevent our suffering? Does God not care that we suffer? These are all questions dealt with in “The Goodness Of God: Assurance of Purpose in the Midst of Suffering” by Randy Alcorn
Many times we are faced with circumstances which, from a human standpoint, simply don’t make sense. It is then we must go to God and seek to see things from His point of view. Evil exists, yes, but the fact of its existence is also proof of the existence of God. Mr. Alcorn takes us to the feet of our Lord and helps us to see His goodness, to magnify His glory and to trust in Him. His wisdom enables his readers to prepare for suffering and enables us to use it as a way to grow deeper in our faith.
This small book is a quick read but still offers a deep and searching look into the depravity of man, the reality of evil and the glorious nature of God.
I can’t say enough good things about “The Goodness of God”. We are all going to experience trials and suffering at some point; if we aren’t now, or if we haven’t, we will. We all know of others who are going through extreme difficulties. Because of these realities ” The Goodness Of God: Assurance of Purpose in the Midst of Suffering” by Randy Alcorn is a must read for every Christian.
I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for purposes of review. I was not required to give a positive review, only a substantive and truthful one.
