"If God, Why Evil?" By Norman L. Geisler

I was so excited to recieve this book to review. After reading it I've found that the book had good points and bad points for me.

This book is concise and to the point with the topics covered. All the questions that are brought up are laid out logically and the author comes to a conclusion based on those points. I thought that was very helpful. There's no emotion to cloud the logic.

However, this book was a little to 'meaty' for me. I had trouble wrapping my head around some of the concepts and even though it states in the beginning of the book that this is laid out in plain language I had trouble with it.

I think that this is a book that I'm going to have to read multiple times in order to understand all the concepts that the author was trying to get across.

I must stop here for a second and just commend the author for taking on this hard subject. Not only taking it on but trying to bring it across in a way that makes sense to the average person not just seminary students.

Overall, I think this is a good book on a subject that many Christians struggle with. But, for me, I'm going to have to read it more than once to understand. This book might not be a good read for someone who is new to Christianity. It might go over their heads too.

I recieved this book for free from Bethany House publishers in exchange for my review. I was not paid to give my review and all thoughts expressed are my own.
