One Bible, Many Answers

In God's Problem, the New York Times bestselling author of Misquoting Jesus challenges the contradictory biblical explanations for why an all-powerful God allows us to suffer.


  • A very thoughtful yet biblical book

    By D. Tuggle
    I love books that challenge people to think outside their religious wormholes. This is one of those books. If we could learn to answer the question of suffering without dodging it, the World would be a better place. I too wish that more people would put more thought into why humans suffer instead of just believing what everyone else believes. But as a thinking Christian myself, I don't believe that Almighty God is in control of all things good and bad that happens on the earth anyway. Not saying that he isn't sovereign, but in His sovereignty He has limited himself to operate within the rules that He set up from the beginning. God gave man dominion over the earth, and he couldn't take it back once he gave it because He is God-- He can't lie or be an Indian-giver no matter what Job is recorded to have said. Thus He sent Jesus to die to at least give us some power and authority to make a difference in the world we occupy. So like a US ambassador in communist China, we now have the resources of Heaven available to us and can live in relative safety even with all hell breaking loose around us, but we have to do more. We have to tell our Gov't to intervene in our part of the world in Jesus' name as we are (or should be) ambassadors for the Anointed One who is Jesus, the Son of God whose Kingdom we have become a part of through faith (supposedly).
