From a doctor of the Medical profession comes a groundbreaking analysis of the deepest question of life: why suffering? The Problem of Evil is arguably the single most important obstacle to faith in God. Down through ages past, several theologians and philosophers have wrestled with this problem in trying to provide credible answers to daunting questions like, "How can a loving and powerful God exist if there is so much evil and suffering in this world?"


Traditionally, God has been deemed to be all-powerful, all-knowing and all-good. Can such a God, if he exists, permit suffering in his creation? If ever we find an answer to this question, then what do we make of different religions offering their own versions of why God allows suffering? Many books that try to answer these questions talk on a highly intellectual level and, as a result, are circulated mostly within the academic circle of philosophers and theologians. Others are too simplistic in their explanations, which leave us with more questions than answers. Some do not draw out the full implications of a particular proposal, some frustratingly incomplete, talking about only one aspect of the problem of evil, either philosophical, pastoral or theological and some do not get the facts right.


Discontent with all the lame answers given to the problem of suffering, for the first time a Medical Doctor has decided to shoulder the burden of theologians and philosophers in dealing with the problem of suffering. Having encountered the reality of suffering in his everyday medical practice, Dr. Jerriton will rest no more as he lays down the plight of humanity on the doorsteps of theology and philosophy, demanding answers from both of them.


Mining materials from leading scholars of the 21st century, the author breaks all barriers of jargon so as to offer his own compelling, easily understandable, concise, to-the-point and a fresh approach to the problem of suffering.


Although the final word narrows down to a Christian worldview, the questions taken up in these pages and the answers given do not presuppose Christian beliefs and stimulates any mind that has been curious to ask the question of God and suffering.


In this book, you will get hard-hitting answers to:
  1. Can God and evil co-exist?

  2. Is evil evidence against or for God?

  3. What do Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam say about the problem of evil?

  4. Can Christianity offer a fresh revision of God and suffering?

  5. How can we live in a world that is saturated with suffering?


The fresh proposals in this book are guaranteed to speak with a voice of clarity to the new generation of people who continue to ask the age old question: if God, why evil?
