DR. CHRISTOPHER W. MORGAN, author, Professor of Theology and Associate Dean of the School of Christian Ministries at California Baptist University (see www.CalBaptist.edu ), will address the theme of his latest book, co-edited with Robert A. Peterson and co-authored with a group of highly respected Christian scholars: "SUFFERING & THE GOODNESS OF GOD."
"Suffering and the Goodness of God" presents biblical truths concerning suffering and challenges believers to promote justice and to emulate God’s grace as they minister to others.
Famine. Sickness. Terrorist Attacks. Natural disasters.
Each day horrific scenes of suffering are streamed before us through television, the Internet, and newspapers. Believers are taught that God is good, and they believe this truth. Yet when they are faced with suffering and hardships, the one question believers most often asked is, Why?
"Suffering and the Goodness of God" brings insight to many contemporary concerns of suffering by outlining Old and New Testament truths and tackling difficult questions concerning God’s sovereignty, human freedom, and the nature of evil.
"Suffering and the Goodness of God" offers believers biblical truths concerning suffering and then challenges them to promote justice in the harsh, unsure world around them and to emulate God’s grace as they minister to those who are suffering.
