Overview

Explains tragedy from a spiritual standpoint and how we should respond. Considers the question in depth, addressing the standard atheist challenge: why would a just and loving God permit… <fill in your favorite atrocity here>. Examines the Prosperity Gospel – Name it and claim it! Is suffering due to our failure to live up to God’s requirements? Is it a test of our faith? Does God protect the righteous from all harm? Is adversity proof of our spiritual inadequacy? Does Karma play a role? How does the omnipotence of God relate to cosmic justice? Are we merely puppets of our genes and cultural conditioning, predestined to Heaven or Hell by an omnipotent Creator? Is God unjust to punish finite sins with an infinite sentence to Hell? What is the purpose of Hell? (And it’s not what you think.) What does sin have to do with Free Will? What’s the Bible truth about Free Will? How does it relate to suffering? How do Islam, the Butterfly Effect, and the Wiccan Threefold Law of Return relate to the topic? Discover the Truth for yourself!

Meet the Author

The author, M.E. Brines, spent the Cold War assembling atomic artillery shells and preparing to unleash the Apocalypse (and has a medal to prove it.) But when peace broke out, he turned his fevered, paranoid imagination to other pursuits. Designer of more than twenty sci-fi wargames and The Struggle of Nations play-by-e-mail game (all available at www.fantasynations.com) he also organized a dozen fantasy gaming conventions (the EconomyCons) and spends his spare time scribbling another steampunk romance occult adventure novel, which despite certain rumors absolutely DOES NOT involve time-traveling Nazi vampires!
A member of the British Society for Psychical Research, he is a like Professor Van Helsing: both a long-time student of the occult, and a committed Christian. He is also the author of two dozen books, e-books, chapbooks and pamphlets on esoteric subjects such as Alien Abduction, Alien Hybrids, UFOs, Conspiracies, Mind Control the Falun Gong, esoteric Nazism, the Knights Templar, astrology, magick, the Bible, the spear of Longinius and Christian discipleship. Most are available through Smashwords at http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/mebrineshttp://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/mebrines. His work has also appeared in Challenge magazine, The Traveller Chronicle, Midnight Times, The Outer Darkness, Tales of the Talisman, and The Willows magazine.
