For a lot of people, the biggest question about God isn't, surprisingly enough, whether he exists. Instead, it's about whether God is truly good. Dinesh D'Souza, in his debates with leading atheists, quickly realized that many of his debates would revolve around the question of evil in this world and how God could create a world that allowed such suffering and evil. In Godforsaken, Dinesh D'Souza takes these questions head-on. Does God act like a tyrant? Is God really responsible for the evil in this world? Why is there suffering in the world?
For the first time ever, Dinesh D'Souza approaches this topic with historical and scientific proofs and presents to the reader why God is truly worthy of our worship and love.

I don't agree with everything D'Souza says, but it enriched my faith and made me think. It definitely answers the question of why bad things happen and is there a God who cares? Well worth the time. I highly recommend it.
I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I not only gained valuable insight, but a measure of comfort and reassurance. Professionally done, and at the pinnacle of academic standard of presenting a case, refuting opposing arguments, and achieving logical conclusions. I couldn't recommend this book highly enough.
Dinesh D'Souza's other books, What's So Great About Christianity and Life After Death: The Evidence.
I would say this book rates in between in quality of content, with What's So Great About Christianity rating higher. Godforsaken, takes some of the information in What's So Great and a little from Life After Death, and expands upon it, while breaking new territory.
A good read, but it's not necessarily a book to listen to when you're driving in busy traffic, for example, as if you lose concentration in certain parts, you'll miss the point being made and the logic behind it.
A whole new way of looking at life.
You will have to listen to it at least three times to absorb half of what he is saying
Thanks, got it!
M. Scott Peck's "The Road Less Traveled", "Further Along the Road Less Traveled", and "The Road Less Traveled and Beyond" guided many a sufferer into recovery. "Godforsaken" does the same.
Either this book was badly written and superbly read, or this book was superbly written and superbly read. I am inclined to believe the latter. Lloyd James' performance is nothing less than outstanding.
"Godforsaken" was written in language of the heart. Now see it!
I can't visualize how a film of this book could be made. It would have to be at least as good as "Life of Pi".
