Whether reeling from a financial crisis or wringing your hands in a hospital waiting room, you've probably struggled to make sense out of sorrow. Today our guest flags the religious and philosophical dead-ends that can make tough situations even worse. He will offer a thoughtful analysis of the existence of evil. He will also lead us to discover what the Bible has to say about God's sovereignty, our own free will, and Satan's potential influence in our painful experiences and what to do when God seems silent. Join us for an encouraging conversation.
