Description

Is the existence of evil incompatible with the existence of an omnipotent and loving God? If God is sovreign and evil still exists, is God still good? Is it right, even good for Christians to cry out to God in light of the suffering that is faced in the hardships of life? In this lecture Christopher Wright establishes a Biblical, theological perspective on these questions and more.
