Publisher's Summary

The Problem of God is written by a skeptic who became a Christian and then a pastor, all while exploring answers to the most difficult questions raised against Christianity. Mark grew up in an atheistic home, and after his father's death, began a skeptical search for truth through exploring science, philosophy, and history, asking the big questions of life, and eventually finding answers in Christianity.

In a disarming, winsome, and persuasive way, The Problem of God responds to the top 10 questions people raise against God, and Christianity, including, among others:

  • The Problem of Science
  • The Problem of God's Existence
  • The Problem of the Bible
  • The Problem of Evil and Suffering
  • The Problem of Hell
  • The Problem of Sex
  • The Problem of Hypocrisy

Each chapter answers the specific challenge using a mix of theology, philosophy, and science on the one hand, while also using stories and anecdotes. It's apologetics for the rest of us, focused on both convincing the skeptic, and informing the Christian.

Frusteratingly circular logic

He zeroes in on minor holes and/or inconsistencies as reasons to wholly reject other beliefs systems, while charging that everything in the bible is airtight and has never been "legitimately" challenged. I say "legitimately" because he sets up weak strawmen such as "Aethiests belive that: First there was nothing, then something came from that nothing for no reason and boom! Humans appeared!? That just doesn't make sense!" (paraphrased example)

Essentially uses the "Chewbacca Defense".

Perspective

what makes this book special is the way that Mark from his own challenges communicates a concise Christian message on an array of topics. This perspective allows the book to be especially meaningful.
