Why Does God Allow Suffering? A Few Resources

Woodland Cemetery, Monroe

A friend asked me: "Any suggestions for resources for a teen struggling to believe in God? Questioning why does God allow suffering?"

Here are a few suggestions.

William Lane Craig, On Guard. See Chapter 7, "What About Suffering?"

Philip Yancey, Disappointment with God.

Philip Yancey, Where Is God When it Hurts?

Greg Boyd, Is God to Blame? Beyond Pat Answers to the Problem of Suffering.

C. S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain.

Watch the movie "The Shack." Then, read Roger Olsen's book Finding God in the Shack.
