In a world riddled with disappointment, malice and tragedy, what rationale do we have for believing in a benevolent God? In this book, John Stackhouse explores how great thinkers have grappled with this question--from Buddha, Confucius, Augustine, Hume and Luther to C. S. Lewis, eventually finding the best answer in the Christian promise of transformation.

What People are Saying About This
"John Stackhouse . . . reduces the tangled issue to one fundamental question--Is God trustworthy?--and offers a careful, wise and well-argued answer."
Philip Yancey, author of Where Is God When It Hurts?
"This is the best book in accessible English on how to think about the problem of evil. One of the finest theologians in North America, Stackhouse brings to bear insights from Scripture, philosophy and theology on this age-old dilemma. I recommend this first to anyone asking how a good and powerful God can permit radical evil."
Gerald McDermott, Roanoke College, Virginia
