Is God really good? Most people who believe would say yes. But still they worry, and are afraid. When bad things happen, they ask "Why God?" It usually means, "Why did you let this happen?" It's a valid question. If God is all powerful and all good, why does He let bad things happen? This question has stumped devotees since time began, and yet they insist that God is good. Is there a reason? Is it reasonable to believe in a good God? One that scripture describes as having "no darkness in Him at all"? If you have ever wondered why we suffer, and how suffering makes sense in the face of a loving God, this is your book--your series of books. It turns the Bible into a story for adults, a love story, but also a story of war and loss, of incredible risks and freedom. God took the risks because He believes so much in love; and only in freedom is love real. My friend calls it the back story. This series fills in the back story of the Bible, being as true to its Spirit and research as possible. If you've ever wanted to read the Bible and struggled, or have come away confused, this is written for you; and for anyone who would like to understand things that don't seem to make sense in that book. Let the characters come to life, walk a while with them, and understand them, especially God. Be prepared for some surprises. This is the Bible like you've never read it!
