Sooner or later we're all affected by suffering and evil—sometimes in horrible ways—and we often want to know why.

In this short book, Scott Petty guides us through the Old Testament story of Job—a man who suffered excruciating pain and grief without ever knowing why. On the way through, Scott deals with some of the common questions people have about suffering and evil:

  • Why do bad things happen to Christians?
  • Does God cause suffering?
  • Is God in control of suffering and evil?

Like all the Little Black Books, this one gets straight to the point.

Contents

  • Introduction
  • Chapter 1: The question of suffering
  • Chapter 2: The question of evil
  • Chapter 3: The question of God
  • Endnotes

About Little Black Books

A series of books that get straight to the point on the topics that Christians always have questions about. Not too big, not too fancy, and not at all boring. LBBs are ideal for young Christians (ages 14-20+), but speak biblical truths applicable to any age range.
