How can we understand death, disease, and suffering in light of the Bible’s teaching that our Creator God is loving? Ken Ham confronts this topic head-on. There really are answers that give the peace we need.


Why do death, disease, and suffering exist in this world if there is a loving God?

Secularists often use the existence of death and suffering to mock belief in a loving Creator God, and Christians can also find it to be a terrible dilemma. Is God truly loving, as the Bible says? And if he is, why does he allow death, disease, and suffering to continue in this world—for both Christians and unbelievers? Is death the end? Is it okay for Christians to struggle with these questions and the emotions they evoke?

This is one of the most common and earnest questions asked of Ken Ham, and he deals with the issue directly yet sensitively. Using personal examples from within his own family, Ken opens up about his experiences grappling with this difficult topic and shares the ultimate solution found in God’s Word.

This unique book explores the following topics:

  • The Right Question
  • The Big Picture
  • Making Sense of Suffering
  • Isn’t This All Very Unfair?
  • Why Doesn’t He Heal?
  • Beyond the Grave
  • Beauty from Ashes
  • The Vantage Point of Time
  • Bowing the Knee
  • Between Now and Then
  • From Genesis to Revelation
  • Jesus Wept
  • Life or Death
  • The Last “Goodbye”
  • Memorials

“In this book, I relate a true account of life, suffering, and death. I open myself up, sharing my own struggles and the emotional trauma of dealing with this issue. You will feel the struggle and perhaps identify with it. But there really are answers that give that peace we need.” — Ken Ham
