Why is doing good no guarantee for an easy life? One of the most common objections to the Christian Faith is 'If God created the universe, and is still in control of it, then why does he allow the suffering and injustice?' Melvin Tucker considers the different opinions people have before investigating the biblical answers about a crucial topic that needs to be faced by an evangelistic church. He looks at the situations biblical characters faced, the opposition to Jesus himself, and the suffering of the early church. This book provides the key factors behind the benefit and purpose of suffering.
