    40 Questions about Suffering and Evil

    Author: Greg Welty
    Multifaceted answers to the multifaceted challenges of suffering and evil.

    Both inside and outside the Christian faith, many difficult realities trouble human hearts and minds. By being equipped to answer questions about suffering and evil, Christians can persevere in faith, share their faith, and defend the faith when confronted with these inevitable challenges of living in a fallen world.

    In 40 Questions About Suffering and Evil, Greg Welty shows the necessity of exploring our vocabulary around evil and suffering so we can clearly see and express the best questions. Welty explores vital ideas, backgrounds, and issues, answering questions like these:

    • What is the difference between Moral Evil and Natural Evil?

    • What is the Bible's role in helping us understand suffering and evil?

    • Does God will all suffering and evil?

    • How is the gospel relevant to counseling those who suffer?

    Welty provides biblically informed intellectual resources for answering significant questions about suffering and evil, exposing readers to a wide range of influential views articulated by Christians over the past two millennia.
