Got Questions About God?

Screen Shot 2014-12-14 at 6.07.37 PM

Do you have a friend who’s got questions about God? Greg’s father was an atheist who had lots of questions. Over an extended period, Greg and his father wrote letters to one another where they talked honestly about them. The questions include:

  • Why is the world so full of suffering?
  • Why does God create earthquakes and famines?
  • Is your God all-powerful?
  • Why didn’t God spare your mother?
  • How can you believe that a man was God?
