About this product
- DescriptionTsunamis, earthquakes, famines, wars, diseases - these and other devastating forces lead Christians to ask painful questions. Is God all-powerful? Is God good? How can God allow so much incent human suffering? These questions, taken together, have been called the theodicy problem, and in this book Thomas Long explores what preachers can and should say in response. Long reviews the origins and history of the theodicy problem and engages the work of major thinkers who have posed solutions to it. Cautioning pastors t to igre urgent theodicy-related questions arising from their parishioners, he offers biblically based approaches to preaching on theodicy, guided by Jesus' parable of the wheat and the tares and the greatest theodicy text in Scripture - the book of Job.
