Suffering : If God Exists, Why Doesn't He Stop it?, Paperback / softback Book

Suffering : If God Exists, Why Doesn't He Stop it? Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


If God exists, does he care about his evolving, suffering world?

Most answers are unsatisfactory. Morris's book is different: short but not superficial, strong in its science and philosophy, and realistic as a carer of a handicapped teenage grandson, still unable to walk and talk.

Like Stephen Hawking and Einstein, John Morris also tries to explore the mind of God.

Violence began with the Big Bang, long before legendary Adam's sin.

Morris believes God is typically non-interventionist but constantly interactive, operating creatively within his own physical laws, that allow freedom to particles and people, resulting in innovations and mutations, not always beneficial.

Compared with other religions, Christ's cross and resurrection give more historic hope in a God who suffers alongside us, to create good, responsible persons.

Here is a 100-minute read, of interest to believers and atheists alike.

Its brave conclusion gives reasonable grounds for thinking we live in a loving God's best possible world, despite unavoidable suffering and natural disasters.
