Well done David! "Mr Valiant for the Truth"
on 5 February 2010
At last! A book that doesn't try to defend God. God's love is not the sentimental "pap" that nearly every Evangelist and Pastor is preaching nowadays.
God's love sent His Only Beloved Son to The Cross!
We need to get back to the "Gospel of Righteousness" that the Bible (and David Pawson) teaches.
David poses the question," If God is all-powerful and all-loving, then how can such things happen in which there is so much suffering?", then he seeks to answer that from Scripture.
He doesn't tell us, "Natural Disasters are a complete mystery that we will never understand", he doesn't answer it, "God allows them for the good they bring out in some of us, (not all, eg Child traffickers!)", nor does he say, "God therefore can't be all-poweful if he doesn't prevent them." What he does say is,....... ," well read it for yourself and find out what he shows us Scripture teaches on this subject, if we are willing to accept it and get a more realistic picture of what God's Goodness is really about.
I can only say it came the closest to satisfying me on this question, like no other I've read, and I've read a fair few.
