    A great book.

    I have read other books about why God allows suffering in the world and this book definitely explains it in a wonderful way. The author supports the reasons for why bad things happen with scripture. After reading the book, my faith was strenghtened. Whenever I start to feel in doubt about the goodnes of God, I'll go back read a chapter of this book and then go to the bible to find the quoted scriptures. If any one is confused about why a good God would allow suffering in our world, I recommend they read this book. It think it will bring you peace and confirm your faith.
