About the Book

The problem of evil and human suffering is the chief reason for atheism and doubt.

H. Stuart Atkins challenges skeptics and encourages believers in this book, tackling big questions from a secular and biblical perspective. The goal is to answer this: If God exists and is all loving, why do the innocent suffer and why does evil exist?

On the theological and philosophical side, attempts to reconcile the existence of God with the reality of evil often fall prey to logical fallacies of the nature of God. Such attempts not only fail to solve the problem of pain and suffering, but they turn a difficult problem into an impossible problem. By confronting the truth, we can serve the best interests of scholarship, theology, and philosophy.

If one is to use logic as a tool for exposing the alleged inconsistencies of the Christian faith, the game must be played by logical rules. Join the author as he overcomes ambiguity, circular reasoning, and fallacies to answer questions surrounding God, good, and evil.
