Is God Good?

2312

The physical, psychological, and economic sufferings of the COVID-19 pandemic require that we think about the problem of suffering. When bad circumstances occur, how are we to understand them? Is God powerless to stop bad things? Is God good? In this study of Job, I explore these questions through the age-old inquiry: “Why do bad things happen to good people?”

“I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there’s gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.” so begin the tribulations of the children’s classic hero, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day?

The book has a positively puritan title (check out the length and descriptive nature in all its glory!). But it also captures a great truth. This little boy’s struggles have enchanted generations of readers because every one of us has terrible, horrible, bad days. More seriously, it reminds us that not every day in this world is a good day. The 19th Century American Poet H. W. Longfellow has penned: “Into each life some rain must fall, / Some days must be dark and dreary.”
