In our world things are not the way they are supposed to be. If God is perfect, loving, and powerful, why does he allow this world to be so painful and imperfect? Scripture provides satisfying answers to these questions.

Written to equip and strengthen laypeople in their defense of the faith, Christian Answers to Hard Questions challenges contemporary opposition to Christianity with concise, practical answers. 


“Edgar gives wise counsel in sorting through major issues about evil. Using a biblically grounded worldview, he ably distinguishes evil as an intrusion into a world that God originally created good and shows the inadequacy of modern materialism. He gives hope on the basis of Christ’s work of redemption. He also provides useful guidance about the death and suffering of animals and about science.”

—Vern S. Poythress, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
