Book Review-The Goodness of God

I've just finished reading 'The Goodness of God' by Randy Alcorn.  This book was life-impacting for me.  It is a condensed version of his book 'If God is Good: Faith in the Midst of Suffering and Evil', which I plan to read next.  'The Goodness of God' is not long-118 pages, but there is a lot packed in those pages.  It is a book I will definitely come back to reference in the future.  I think most everyone, at one time or another in their life, questions why there is so much suffering and evil if God loves us so much.  Randy Alcorn answers that question with many different scripture references and examples throughout the book. 
Here is an excerpt from the back cover: " For those times when we're wounded by broken trust, assaulted by disease, or victimized by evil-or when we're crushed to see such things happen to people we love-Randy Alcorn offers something solid to hold on to."  I have a chronic illness, and this book has helped me to now have solid scripture references and understanding for why God chose me to live this life.  I would definitely recommend this book to hand out to anyone who is dealing with grief, suffering,or illness. Disclaimer: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
