Why Does God Allow Suffering?

By Nicky Gumbel

Is sin outdated?

Why should one man die for other people’s sins?

Why is the cross so important to Christians today?

In this thought-provoking booklet, Nicky Gumbel suggests ways to start responding to these tough questions.

Sections within the booklet include:

  • Human freedom
  • God works through suffering
  • God more than compensates for our suffering
  • God is involved in our suffering
  • How do we respond to suffering?

Why Does God Allow Suffering? is taken from the book Searching Issues by Nicky Gumbel. The booklet is designed to be given to Alpha guests as well as anyone who may wish to read and reflect upon the question.

It is booklet 1 of 7; you can see others within the Searching Issues booklet series here.
