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.

Within the pages of this exceptional book, readers will embark on a transformative journey, exploring pivotal topics such as:

  • The right question to ask
  • The meaning behind suffering
  • The apparent absence of divine healing
  • The mysteries beyond the grave
  • The profound beauty that emerges from the ashes
  • The vantage point of time
  • The space between now and then
  • The bittersweetness of the last goodbye
  • The ever-present shadow of death

Divine Dilemma is a vital Christian resource that extends compassion and the healing power of God’s Word to hurting individuals and communities. Whether you are a family seeking solace, a church desiring to offer guidance, or a therapist searching for an invaluable tool, this book is a wealth of hope and truth, offering comfort and clarity in the face of life's most challenging trials.

Provides peace and understanding about sickness and death
Review by Kathleen C
This audiobook is wonderful. It is a difficult topic but the narrator Will Stauff reads it so caringly. Divine Dilemma is an update to Ken Ham's book 'How Could a Loving God?'
Who wants to think of dying? None of us. We want to avoid it. The truth is we will die one day. All of the people that we know will die one day. This book helps you to understand how to deal with it. How to understand why we will die? How to deal with the loss of loved ones? How to know where we are going when we die?

Ken Ham relates a true account of life, suffering, and death to God's worldview.

In an evolutionary world, humans are no more valuable than any other form of life. So why do people who believe in evolution say that something is just or unjust if there is no absolute authority?

He shows that the secular humanist worldview has no answer for the problems of suffering and death. That view is based on the wrong foundation of man's word.

Christians need to look to Genesis 1-11 to learn about death, suffering, and disease. That should be their foundation.

The Apostle Paul saw sickness and illness as normal living in a world that has been ruined by sin.

Every second of every day we live in a fallen world, and we can expect pain, suffering, and hardships.

Sooner or later, the bodies we live in will die and perish.

When we can't see goodness we must bend a knee and trust His goodness in the midst of evil will be revealed.

God's word has a plan for us beyond the grave as well.

Jesus wept at death, we weep at death.
Biblical Answers for the Most Challenging Circumstances of Life in A Fallen World
Review by JoyfulMommy
I read Ken Ham’s book titled How Could A Loving God? a few years ago while in the midst of a cancer battle, and was strengthened in my faith as he explained suffering from a biblical worldview. This newly updated and expanded edition of that book is exceptional, and I’m so glad it’s available in audiobook format now!

Ken Ham reveals the raw pain and emotions of his heart while sharing the heart-wrenching story of his brother’s illness and subsequent death. I was moved to tears while listening to the personal struggles he and his family faced while seeking answers to the age-old question, “Why?” The means God used to strengthen their faith and give answers to their aching hearts and minds is truly God-ordained.

As with all of Ken Ham’s books, he does an excellent job of laying the groundwork for a biblical worldview beginning with Genesis. Suffering and death are explained by the Fall and the entrance of sin and death into the world through Adam’s disobedience. But abundant life and the hope of a perfect world without sin and death come through the obedience of the Second Adam, Jesus Christ, who promises to one day restore all things.

This audiobook is rich with biblical truths supported by Scripture. It also shares the wisdom of a man deeply in love with God and committed to His Word as Ken Ham quotes his brother, Pastor Robert Ham, who like Abel, “though he is dead, he still speaks” (Heb. 11:4) Listen and be encouraged to trust that God is indeed working all things for good; that even when we can’t understand “why,” we must bow the knee before our Sovereign Lord, knowing that He alone is God and worthy of our praise and trust.
Love the addition
Review by Ashley
This is a wonderful addition to a library, especially if you have the book you can read along with the audio. If you are one that likes to just listen to it, this is a great book to listen too. I really enjoyed listening to it in the car while doing my running around that needed to be done. I would just mark where I left off when i got back in the car to go to the next place.
Filled with Biblical Wisdom for a Hard Subject
Review by Dustie
Ken Ham addresses the difficult subject of why God would allow bad things happen in this world, especially to His followers. It can be really hard for us to understand this when we experience or see awful things in this world. The most important take-away I received from this book was that it is important for us to be honest with ourselves and other looking on, that the Bible never said we’d have it easy or always be happy just because we follow God. It simply says that He will never forsake us, as believers. In other words, we won’t have to face all of these difficulties without Him. All of the bad that happens is a result of sin. The world was “very good” until disobedience entered in, which led to the consequences of death, disease, pain, fear, etc. When we look at the events from the proper perspective, it doesn’t make it easy to handle, nor does it make the pain disappear, but it does allow the truth to sink in, that God is good. Always. We can trust Him because He is good and loves us, and He never lies. It is our sin that has cursed the world. Not all bad things that happen in our lives are a direct result of our individual sin, but they are a result of the original curse sin brought down on our world. For example, if I get cancer, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m not following God closely enough. While
God may use that to draw someone to Him, to allow others to see a believer’s faith, or to ultimately deliver a believer to heaven, cancer itself is present in our world because of sin entering in Genesis 3.
Overall, this book is emotional and raw, with some personal experiences shared. It is one I recommend reading through when you have time to focus, due to the depth of the topic.
