I only made through half of this book. That was more than enough. It takes on the concept of pain and evil existing in the world. How could a good god create evil. There's nothing new in his apologetics. God, he argues, created free choice. Evil exists by men and angels making bad choices. That will satisfy the believers who read it and will still leave those who question scratching their heads. Where did these bad choices come from? And if God knew the choices his creation would make before the ...more

Is God Sovereign and what exactly does that mean?

I would recommend this book for people wanting to understand God's sovereignty better. I cannot say I agree 100% with everything but then how often does that happen anyway. He deals with questions many of us have and does use some stories to make his point and many scriptures. I really liked the chp on fear. This book is very insightful and I love that he has some teachings from some Church Fathers from many years ago Such wisdom is wonderful. One
The only thing I got out of this book is the knowledge that there are people who still like to cherry pick from the pool of Biblical theology. The title was promising but the content was more of the same Arminian works righteousness mantra that has been preached for years. I had to stop about half way through the book and skim the the end. It was too narrow minded for my taste. The god purported in this book seems to be an out of control, hand wringing, weak and helpless god. The devil has his w ...more
"Jesus is the great Revealer of God to you. He reveals God's heart, God's attitude, & God's desire toward life & the human race. Watch how Jesus approached the brokenhearted, the sick, the suffering, the confused, the guilt-ridden, & the downtrodden, & there you will see the will of God in action. Jesus is the will of God in an earth suit; & when He entered the war zone on planet Earth, He aggressively challenged the disasters & dilemmas of humanity." - an excerpt taken ...more

God is good all the time and all the time, God is good.

What a wonderful eye opening experience in this book. I have never thought that God was to blame for the bad things that happen to this world. I always did wonder why He let it happen. I have never really thought that our every experience was predestined by God but I did think that He let things happen to us so we would learn to turn to Him. I have such a much better understanding of Satan's role in my life. I am very happy that I was blesse

Excellent Book

This is a must read. Wonderful insight and clarity given to the Truth. After you are done reading you will know, more than ever before, just how much God loves you. He never brings us pain, only love, healing and peace. I'm going to read it again. A wonderful book!

Amazingly Delusional

If this were to be taken seriously by anyone, I would suggest they seek professional medical care.

Not even well argued. But then again, it is an argument for the reality of a myth
Cathy Hicks davis

This book has blessed me. I highly recommend it. Reminded me of the truth I need to focus on in God's word.
Thought provoking

Definitely puts things in perspective! In a very positive and powerful way. So many things we need to hear right now

“Choice Settles Destiny Free will or fate? Choice or no choice? Is our ultimate destiny a result of our own choices, or do we have no choice, with God already having preprogrammed our lives in such a way that we have no choice in the matter? Why is any of this important? Because what you believe rules you! Your belief system determines what you embrace and accept into your life and what you resist and reject as unacceptable! Wrong beliefs will hold you in bondage and keep you out of God’s good pleasure, while believing and choosing the truth will set you free and keep you in liberty (see John 8:32).” 0 likes
“Clement of Alexandria said, “So in no respect is God the author of evil…. Free choice and inclination originate sins.” 45 Origen said, “Evils do not proceed from God.” 47 If we imperfect beings are outraged at all the morally wrong occurrences in life, how much more must be our Creator God, who has made us in His image and who is Himself perfect love. Currently we can easily see that on planet Earth God’s will is not the only will that affects things. The reason our world looks like a war zone between good and evil is because it is a war zone between good and evil!” 0 likes
