Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

It is arguably the greatest question of human history: Why would an all-good and all-powerful God create a world full of evil and suffering? Randy Alcorn, author of "If God Is Good" (WaterBrook, ISBN # 1-60142-132-6), brings a fresh, realistic, and thoroughly biblical approach to dealing with all the issues this deep-rooted question raises during Monday's encore "Mid-Morning". One that will help you discover that suffering is, in the end, God's invitation to trust Him. And to hope for a better world. Originally aired March 2, 2010.

Life inevitably brings seasons of loss and pain - often without warning. Dr. Gay Hubbard, author of "More Than An Aspirin: A Christian Perspective on Pain and Suffering," (Discovery House, ISBN# 978-1-57293-257-9) has seen it first-hand during thirty-plus years of Christian counseling. She suggests there's good news about bad news. The bad news is, of course, that we will experience pain. The good news is that by His grace, God can redeem our pain and lead us on a journey into joy and maturity. Find good news amid your bad news during Friday's encore "Mid-Morning". Originally aired May 6, 2010.
