Dr Timothy Keller - Suffering: If God is good why is there so much evil in the world?
Dr Timothy J. Keller considers how God can be good when so much evil exists in the world. In the midst of evil and suffering, abandoning your faith will neither help you handle suffering nor understand God. By looking back to Jesusí death on the cross and looking ahead to the hope of a new heavens and new earth, we can understand Godís overwhelming love for us and the promise that victory will swallow up evil and death.
