If God Why Evil by Norman L. Geisler

If God, Why Evil? is a question that many people have asked and would like an answer that is understandable. This book by Norman L. Geisler will address just about every aspect of this question. Points are laid out in a manner that will make it easy for anyone to read and to understand.

Although this book was written to explain what is a somewhat complicated question, I did not enjoy reading it. There were too many criticisms of other author's books who have their own explanation of why evil exists. I think the author would have been better off stating his own viewpoint of the subject matter and not denigrating what others believe. The critique of The Shack at the end of the book seemed totally out of place and just another work that the author enjoyed giving a negative critique about. I will recommend this book to anyone who wants to read about this subject and get Mr. Geisler's opinion on God and evil in the world.

This book was provided to me to read and review by Bethany House Publishers.

  1. I can see why this book would be a little hard to review. I think that when an author tries to critique another author's work, they are making their own work suspect.
    Not something that I would expect a respected author to do.
