If I Were God I’d End All the Pain – Struggling with evil, suffering and faith

If I were God
I'd end all the Pain

If I Were God I'd End All Pain -Book by John Dickson

No question has plagued the minds of thinking men and women more than the problem of pain: if there is a Creator, how could so much evil and suffering exist? While freely acknowledging the limitations of philosophy, science and religion to provide ultimate answers, John tentatively points to some ancient ideas that have provided a comfort to millions throughout history.

A child catches a rare brain virus and is affected for life.

A father dies in a plane crash.

A dictator murders millions.

Why doesn’t God do anything about the things like this?

Why does He allow them to happen?

In fact, can we still believe in God in the face of all the suffering and pain in the world? John Dickson looks honestly at these questions, and provides some compelling answers. He looks briefly at the alternative explanation for suffering provided by Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Atheism, before turning to what the Bible itself says about God, justice and suffering.
