Suffering, evil

如果神是全能又全善,祂怎麼能允許罪惡與苦難存在?如果祂有意志,卻無法制止這些苦難,祂便算不得全能;如果祂有能力,卻不願處理這些苦難,祂便算不得全善。罪惡與苦難的存在常常讓人質疑著──神在哪裡啊?

本書是一本預防性質的書,為要幫助基督徒思考罪惡與苦難的問題,從中找到與信條真實一致的信仰。作者以見招拆招的方式,釐清苦罪各種虛假面貌。章末附有問題討論,可供小組研討使用。

Excellent book for those who want to understand the true Christian life. Stands in stark contrast to the "health and wealth" theology of our day and presents a more biblical view of what it means to follow Christ, namely, suffering and self-denial. ( )
