Tsunamis, bombings, epidemics, famine . . . Is God just? Can we trust Him? Why do people suffer? How does God help suffering people? Christians affirm the goodness of God, but their life experiences sometimes seem to contradict this basic affirmation of their faith. Meanwhile, many books on the Christian view of suffering tend to be abstract, unhelpfully stressing overly theoretical and philosophical perspectives.Avoiding a mere "problem of evil" treatise, Where Is the God of Justice brings the practical wisdom of Scripture and Christian thought to bear on the rubber-meets-the-road realities of human pain and suffering.Here is a comprehensive theology of suffering that focuses on experiences from throughout the full span of the human life cycle--infertility, betrayal, war, discrimination, aging, and many others. Examining the classic issues such as illness, natural disasters, and grief, McWilliams adds fascinating chapters on divine suffering and animal suffering, making this work particularly unusual.An invaluable resource for pastors, counselors, and all who struggle with the day-to-day questions of pain and suffering.
