If God Is Good by Randy Alcorn Book Review

If God is Good by Randy Alcorn


ISBN  978-1-60142-132-6

If God is Good --Faith in the Midst of Suffering and Evil.

I chose this book to be my first book to review for bloggingforbooks.com.

I'm sure that I am among many Christians who can't help but wonder why God allows so much evil
and suffering in the world.

Randy Alcorn goes into depth on the subject.  512 pages in depth in fact!!

This is not a book to be taken lightly.  This is not a book you can sit down and read in a day
or two....not even in a week or two.  It's a book that you need to read when you have peace and
quiet and can really allow what you are reading to sink in.  Praying for understanding before reading would be good.

The author has spent a very long time researching this subject to put this book together.  At
the end of each chapter he cites all resources used in that chapter.  Throughout the books you
will find many quotes. You will find an extreme amount of Bible passages as well as Bible passages to look up. You will find the beliefs of Christians, as well as non-Christians throughout each chapter. Another thing you find are testimonies from those who have suffered but found the good in God amidst their suffering.

Based on my own church teachings, I've been taught exactly what he is pointing to in this book
(as a Christian)   I can highly recommend this read to all--Christian or not!  In today's time,
the timing of the printing of this book is all important.  I can not do the book it's proper justice in a book review.
