All the stories drive home some simple truths about life and its challenges— tales in which God has shown up and provided much-needed direction. They will encourage you to reach up and grab hold of hope with both hands, inspire you to rise up in faith, and overcome the obstacles that are holding you back, then begs you to unlock and open the door of belief, while stepping into a reality full of your dreams and aspirations. Our journeys through life may follow many paths—some leading us in destructive ways that bring great pain which causes our hearts to be hardened, and others bringing us great joy. The best path, however, whether it contains pain or joy—is the one that leads us to our Creator. It’s in Him that we find our true calling and the purpose for which we were created, and it is this path that continues to become brighter and brighter until the perfect day arrives. Robert Lee Harris has an important story to tell. From homelessness during his teenage years to prosperity and the good life as an adult, Harris has found the truth in his life through God. Living life at any level has troubles, with consequences that could lead to a destructive life, if not handled correctly. No one can or will help us the way that the Creator can help us. He is the way, the truth, and the life.

God: Why This Evil? examines the more traditional Christian explanation for why God permits evil in this world and offers an alternative explanation. After reviewing several greater-good explanations, that is God allows evil in order to bring about some greater good, Professor Little concludes that such explanations are neither theologically necessary nor practically helpful. In response, theological and philosophical issues related to this great question are clarified, concluding with an alternative explanation for the existence of evil in this world. The major point being that some evil may very well be gratuitous (i.e., has a reason, but no purpose), but does not count against the moral perfections of God, limit His power, or restrict His sovereignty. In conclusion, key Bible passages are examined with an application of the alternative position to the great question of why God allows so much evil in this world.
