The logical dilemma goes something like this: God is before all things and the creator of all things God is sovereign over all that transpires. Evil and suffering exist. How can we conclude anything other than that God is theAuthor of evil? How can we deny that God, in some way, delights in evil?
Many good and faithful Christians have struggled with these kinds of questions, or at the very least, with sufficiently answering them, when prompted by inquiring unbelievers.
In Evil and Suffering in a Sovereign God’s World, Marc Grimaldi seeks to get to the root of this dilemma, while coming to the necessary conclusion that God must be good all the time. In the process of doing this, he addresses such topics as God’s sovereignty and man’s accountability, the existence of evil, fatalism, how the cross of Christ sheds light on these issues, and the practical relevance of knowing these things.
