There are two types of people: those who are currently suffering a tragedy and those who will soon be suffering a tragedy. Is that fatalism? No, it's reality. In this book, Pastor Jim Scudder, Jr. offers help for those of us who are perplexed by the frequent and systematic occurrence of pain, suffering, and evil. He answers the oft-repeated question, â€śWhy does God allow bad things?â€ť and helps us understand the beautiful picture God is painting with the diverse circumstances which color our lives.
