Tough Questions Answered About the Goodness of God
Bill Johnson, the senior leader of Bethel Baptist Church in Redding, California and bestselling author, answers the toughest and most common questions about the goodness of God in his book “Is God Really Good?”
This book is based on the result of a series of interview questions relative to how this question is answered impacts the faith and life of the believer. Theme based chapters include questions on the subjects of:
- Your Destiny
- Intimacy with God
- Disease and Pain
- Dealing with Disappointment
Other chapters look at God’s goodness in the Old Testament, grace, poverty, the power of hope, and many other important biblical faith-building foundational truths from the scriptures.
Pastor Bill Johnson draws from his rich heritage in ministry in responding to each of these probing questions. A unique feature of this book is the confident relaxed conversational style and heartfelt passion that define Pastor Bill’s walk with the Lord. I felt I was in the room participating in a discussion with a small group of friends in a home Bible study, comfortable in the presence of the spirit of the Lord in our midst.
“Is God Really Good?” will resonate with Pastor’s Christian counselors, church leaders, and parents, who will find the book to be a valuable resource for hurting parishioners, discouraged or disillusioned Christians, and troubled teens.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
