Can God Be Trusted?

Can God Be Trusted? Faith and the Challenge of Evil
Paperback

Pitched between the arcane work of the great philosophers and the clichés that every Christian author and preacher seem eager to recycle, this book offers an innovative approach to this classic problem for thoughtful inquirers of every stripe.

Philip Yancey, author of Where Is God When It Hurts?

"John Stackhouse . . . reduces the tangled issue to one fundamental question--Is God trustworthy?--and offers a careful, wise and well-argued answer."

Gerald McDermott, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University

"This is the best book in accessible English on how to think about the problem of evil. One of the finest theologians in North America, Stackhouse brings to bear insights from Scripture, philosophy and theology on this age-old dilemma. I recommend this first to anyone asking how a good and powerful God can permit radical evil.

Jerry Walls, Houston Baptist University


"John Stackhouse . . . [addresses] the problem of evil with theological sophistication, historical depth, and philosophical precision."
