Item Description...
Overview
Crime, famine, disease, war, earthquakes, floods; we open our newspapers, or switch on our television sets, and are confronted with pain and suffering in the world. And that doesn't include a myriad of lesser hurts: daily ones which, while they don't show up on the news, tear at us nonetheless - relationship breakdowns, disloyalty, rejection. We all experience pain and evil to some extent and are affected by others who experience it as well. Our suffering is made worse by being unable to understand or explain why it is happening - Where is God in this? Why doesn't he do something? Is he cruel? Is he there? Even many Christians, who should know some of the answers, can only offer pop-theology cliches to the question of 'Why bad things happen?' Can't we be more helpful than that? We should have more confidence. The Bible sheds light on the ultimate resolution of the problem of evil, a problem so central to human experience. Dr. Morley explores how there can be a God who is loving, just and righteous in spite of the fact that the world is full of pain and evil. Are you putting the blame in the right place? Morley looks at the major reasons for pain and evil: investigating misconceptions about God and illness, the origins of poverty, birth defects and the causes of war. You will be gripped by the thought-provoking nature of his arguments and enlightened by a coping strategy for pain and evil - one that builds a fully-connected world-view into a realisation of our personal part in resolving the problem of evil. God has understandable and wonderful reasons for bringing about a world like ours - a place of tragedy... and a place of grace.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Truth & Excellence  Jun 2, 2008
This insightful book has changed the way I view suffering in the world. I have great peace and hope now, knowing that my God is just, loving, and always good, and being able to see that in the scriptures and in life. The author, Brian Morley shares personal testimony to enrich the philosophical and biblical proof he presents. Despite his personal experiences, Dr. Morley remains objective. I recommend this book to anyone searching for truth and answers in this sometimes miserable world.
 
Powerful & Practical  May 2, 2007
A surprisingly easy-to-read book on pain and evil, God in the Shadows, skillfully sheds light on every imaginable aspect of this difficult topic. Dr. Morley, professor of Philosophy and Bible at The Masters College, gently encourages Christians of all levels to understand and prepare for the opportunities God uses to display His character. Interestingly, Dr. Morley argues for the benefits of the inevitable difficulties that are a part of the world this side of heaven. This exceptional work from a deep thinker sheds light on this complex subject with insight and grace. Building on close to twenty years of teaching on the problem of evil and a loving God, he carefully explains the constructs that usually bog down a reader on this topic. God in the Shadows is comprehensive without dragging, which is accomplished partly through the inclusion of numerous personal illustrations. Although many chapters of the book can stand alone, by reading the entire book, a bigger picture is built that is worth the time invested concluding with a wonderful summary section at the end. Dr. Morley could have turned out a brilliant and technical work that perhaps, many of us would not have understood. Thankfully, that's not the case. Dr. Morley gives us a gift that is not only readable, but wonderfully helpful and practical. Remarkably, by the end of the book the reader is saying "praise God that His plan was to work through a fallen world!"
