This book was written 20 years ago but is still one of the best on the subject, and carries the comfortable and yet scholarly style of its well-known author.

Also, in an earlier chapter titled “The Really Big Question,” Wiersbe does a great job of dealing with the philosophical question of evil in God’s world.
