Answering the Toughest Questions About Suffering and Evil by Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz is a book that explores why suffering and evil exists in the world. The book covers a wide variety of topics, such as why innocent people suffer, what the point of suffering is, and why the Bible is full of violence. The book may be a good choice for someone burdened by the world’s suffering who wonders why evil can be present in a world created by a loving God.

The chapter I found most interesting was “Is There a Difference between the Evil in the World and the Sin in Me?”; I particularly liked the section in which Bickel and Jantz list true-to-life examples of how sin often begets sin. At 163 pages, the book is a nice, quick read. Throughout each chapter, the authors make solid and insightful points.
