On Friday, December 14, 2012, a twenty-year-old gunman walked into Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut and killed twenty small children and six adults. There are no words to describe how sickening this is. How on earth could God allow it?

Events like this beg questions about God. Why would an all-good and all-powerful God create a world full of such evil? In Why Suffering?, world-renowned defender of Christianity Ravi Zacharias and Oxford University philosopher Vince Vitale carefully walk you through a variety of responses that considered cumulatively provide a clear, comprehensive, and convincing case that God is both loving and all-powerful. Why Suffering? is written with great respect for the complexity of the issue, recognizing that many who read it will be in the trenches of deep suffering themselves.
