A clear engagement with the question which is upon the lips of anyone who has ever queried the exisitance of a God of love who created all things: how can their be pain, suffering or evil too?

If you are feeling fragile, then do not fear this book for it does not take a steam roller approach by any stretch of the imagination. I like the approach Yancey takes for he is open and honest sharing personal experience and the thoughts he too has wresled with. Yancey doesn't assume he has all the answers yet aims to help others along their personal quests for understanding.

Trying hard to get to grips with the problem of pain he draws a well thought through picture of the beauty of pain showing two sides to every story.

A book to be taken chapter at a time, it carefully deals with the questions, heart cries and pain of those who believe in the loving creator God yet can't square it with the "evil" they personally face.
