Book 6 of 2018 -- Evil and the Justice of God

Several weeks ago I decided to do a series on Job. And so I went book shopping. When I saw this title I thought it seemed like a good match for some of the questions Job raises. I also knew it was written by someone on a different point of the theology spectrum, which was in fact a selling point.

In the end the sermon series spent (at least in plan) less time than I thought it would talking about God and justice. But the book was a good read. Wright and I are in different places theologically but at the same time I found myself in agreement with what he was saying far more than I had expected.

If it had not been for the series on Job I likely never would have read this book. That would have been a loss.
