The biggest question about God is not, surprisingly enough, whether he exists. It’s about whether God is really good. In this book, Dinesh D’Souza applies recent scientific discoveries in physics, astrophysics, and biology to the persistent problem of evil. The result is a stunningly new and well-reasoned exploration of why a good God can allow so much suffering in this world. Yes, God cares. Investigate the facts for yourself.
Atheists beware: this book contains incontrovertible evidence of a benevolent and omniscient Creator. What is that evidence? It is the spectacular mind of Dinesh D’Souza. Believing such a mind could be the product of random forces would take infinitely more faith than believing in unicorns and leprechauns. A triumphant tour de force.
Dinesh D’Souza examines the strengths and weaknesses of the historic approaches to the problem of suffering, and offers some provocative suggestions based upon more recent ideas of fine tuning and anthropic principles. He tackles the challenges in a fair-minded way, while offering direct answers to the arguments of today’s anti-theists. The result is a readable and entertaining book.
In addition to reviewing the classic explorations of this most vexing problem, Dinesh D’Souza adds two provocative contributions: first, the perspective of a man born in India, a land that views suffering very differently than the West; second, an active engagement with the New Atheists, whom he counts as friends as well as debate partners.
In this provocative and important book, Dinesh D’Souza tackles the most difficult question of faith. Every reader, believer or not, will come away enriched, inspired and compelled to rethink old assumptions.
