Does God care about the sin and suffering in the world today? Why doesn't he bring an end to war and violence? As Dr. Lloyd-Jones puts it: "The question that needs to be asked is not 'Why does God allow war?' but rather 'Why does God not allow the world to destroy itself entirely in its iniquity and its sin? Why does He in His restraining grace set a limit to evil and to sin, and a bound beyond which they cannot pass?' Oh, the amazing patience of God with this sinful world! How wondrous is His love! He has sent the Son of His love to our world to die for us and to save us; and because men cannot and will not see this, He permits and allows such things as war to chastise and to punish us; to teach us, and to convict us of our sins; and, above all, to call us to repentance and acceptance of His gracious offer."

Dr. Originally published in 1939, Lloyd-Jones wrote this book at the outbreak of the Second World War to a people on the brink of despair. It's message, however, is universal and remarkably relevant today as we seek to understand the crises of our own times. Yet readers will find that the truth it contains is a help for those in the midst of any tragedy, whether personal or national. Chapters include "Man in the Presence of God," "Facing the Unexpected," "The Mystery of God's Ways," "Why Does God Allow War?," "The Final Answer to All Our Questions."
