When a disaster happens; when personal tragedy strikes; when we are perplexed by world events, Christians begin to doubt that God is either truly good, or truly in control. Christopher Ash faces these questions head on, without flinching at any of the difficulties. First he looks at six different ways people have answered this question both as Christians and from other religions and none. He then reveals the Bible's answer - the revelation of God's character and purposes throughout history. This warm, pastorally hearted and accessible book will help those struggling with this question to see the grand vision of the Bible s answer - and the tragedy of adopting any other viewpoint.
