The Problem of God

   "All of the problems of heaven and earth, though they were to confront us together and at once, would be nothing compared with the overwhelming problem of God: That He is; what He is like; and what we as moral beings must do about Him."
-- A. W. Tozer --

    Non-fiction binge-reading isn't the best of practices. You can blitz through a fantasy/fiction novel without paying particular care to each and every phrase, but when it comes to books about God and theology and all-around reality, every mark of punctuation can seem integral - if not downright crucial.

   The Problem of God by Mark Clark is not a book to rush through. Mark is the founding pastor of Village Church in Vancouver. Village Church began from his heart as a result of his transformation from avid Atheist to devout Christ-follower. A core part of his journey has been welcoming and encouraging intellectual questioning and skepticism. In The Problem of God he sets to respond to some of the top questions about God:
  • Does God even exist?
  • What do we do with Christianity's violent history?
  • Is Jesus just another myth?
  • Doesn't science disprove the Bible?
  • Is God anti-sex?
  • Aren't Christians hypocrites?
   Mark is on a mission to confront questions, doubts, and assumptions about Christianity, in skeptics and Christians alike. He argues that Christianity encourages the doubts and the questioning, and even more so, he argues why belief in God and the Christian faith is both rational and compelling.
