How can God be morally good if he commands apparently evil actions—for example, the extermination of the Canaanites? This booklet explores this important Old Testament topic.

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.


“Navigating questions about morality, especially the morality of God in the Old Testament, requires special care and thoughtful, biblical consideration. In this little booklet, Beale provides readers with just that.”

—Miles V. Van Pelt, Ph.D., Alan Belcher Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Languages, Academic Dean, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson

“Effectively treats this difficult and, for many, troublesome topic. The way Beale addresses the issues raised in terms of the unfolding of the history of salvation is particularly helpful and instructive.”

—Richard B. Gaffin, Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
