Is God to Blame?
by Greg Boyd
Is God to blame? This is often the question that comes to mind when we
confront real suffering in our own lives or in the lives of those we
love. Pastor Gregory A. Boyd helps us deal with this question honestly
and biblically, while avoiding glib answers.
Writing for ordinary
Christians, Boyd wrestles with a variety of answers that have been
offered by theologians and pastors in the past. He finds that a fully
Christian approach must keep the person and work of Jesus Christ at the
very center of what we say about human suffering and God's place in it.
Yet this is often just what is missing and what makes so much talk about
the subject seem inadequate and at times even misleading.
through in Is God to Blame? is a hopeful picture of a sovereign
God who is relentlessly opposed to evil, who knows our sufferings and
who can be trusted to bring us through them to renewed life.
