Chris Wright on The God I Don’t Understand

Always a cause for notice, Chris Wright has a new book out…

Christopher J. H. Wright, The God I Don’t Understand: Reflections on Tough Questions of Faith (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2008), 224pp., ISBN 9780310275466.

The ‘tough questions’ in this case have to do with suffering and evil, with the book exploring four in particular in its four parts:

(1) What about evil and suffering?
(2) What about the Canaanites?
(3) What about the cross?
(4) What about the end of the world?

A short sample is available here.

More significantly, the book has its own page – Tough Questions of Faith (with a video introduction to the book by Chris) – which contains a downloadable study guide for the book as well as short videos of Chris introducing every chapter.

There are already a significant number of reviews available online, including:

• By M. Daniel Carroll R.
• By Tony Cartledge
• By Michele Howe
• By Donald Kim
• By Scot McKnight
• By Maer dos Santos
• By Charles Savelle

There is also an interview with Chris about the book here.

In addition, several people are blogging through the book: here (Phil Monroe), here, here, and here.

Last but not least, Zondervan academic are hosting a blog series, starting today (4 February 2009).
