    Thrive Perspectives: God, Suffering & Evil

    Thrive Perspectives: God, Suffering & Evil

    If God exists then why is there so much suffering and evil in the world? If God is good, all-powerful and all-knowing, why would he allow so many terrible things to happen? In this episode DJ and Matt discuss this question and, in the process, land on some key elements of the biblical worldview.

    Matt's further reading list:
    "Can God Be Trusted? Faith and the Challenge of Evil" - by Stackhouse, J. G., Jr.
    (2nd ed.; Downers Grove: IVP, 2008).

    "God, Freedom, and Evil" by Plantinga, Alvin. (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1977).

    "Evil and the Justice of God" by Wright, N. T. (Downers Grove, IL: IVP, 2006).

    DJ's further reading list:
    "The Weight of Glory" + "The Problem of Pain" + "Till We Have Faces" - all by C.S. Lewis

    "Why Does God Allow Evil? Compelling Answers for Life’s Toughest Questions" by Dr Clay Jones
