Description - The Message of Evil and Suffering by Mr Peter Hicks

Evil and suffering have always been part of human experience, but they present a significant challenge to Christian belief in a good and all-powerful God. The biblical writers have no time for unreal idealism, in which the life of faith is supposed to be free from anguish, pain and perplexity. But they are confident that God's power and wisdom are sufficient to overcome and transform evil and suffering, and to enable us to be "more than conquerors" in a broken and hurting world. Peter Hicks expounds a range of relevant biblical texts that enable readers to set the issue of evil and suffering in the context of the nature and purposes of God. They may, he says, be a mystery to us, but they are not a mystery to God. Central to his approach is the conviction that the key lies in the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the suffering and triumph of God himself. He also explores the Bible's teaching on how we are to live in a world of evil and suffering.
