In seasons of struggle, loss, trauma, and grief, people often ask the desperate question, “Why would a loving God allow such suffering?” Divine Dilemma is a scriptural guide filled with personal testimonies designed to help you and your family find hope, peace, and answers you can trust. Trusted apologetics author, Ken Ham – the CEO of The Ark Encounter, The Creation Museum, and Answers in Genesis, offers his own relatable stories of struggle and a biblical worldview of suffering to guide you through some of the most difficult times of your life.
In a world plagued by death, disease, and suffering, many ask why a loving God would allow this to happen. In Divine Dilemma, a poignant scriptural guide filled with personal testimonies, author Ken Ham offers hope and peace to grieving families and bewildered communities, strengthening their faith during life's darkest days.
For believers, reconciling this reality of suffering with the teachings of a compassionate Creator raises difficult questions. From a humanistic perspective, death seems to be the tragic end for everyone, leaving hearts shattered in its wake. In the face of such challenges, atheists launch their accusatory gunfire at God, demanding to know, "If you are good and all powerful, why wouldn’t you stop this tragedy from happening?”
During these vulnerable moments of heartache and grief, people need answers from the firm foundation of Scripture. Divine Dilemma serves as a steadfast beacon, empowering readers to withstand the onslaught of godless lies, the confusion perpetuated by an unbelieving culture, and the nagging temptation to doubt the true nature of God. Ken Ham, through his unique and emotionally charged narrative, speaks both from God's Word and from the depths of his own heart, sharing personal struggles and revealing the ultimate solution.
