“Many have grappled with the problem of a loving God coexisting with pain and suffering in the world. But I know of no book that speaks to the issue with the depth of theological sophistication and psychological sensitivity as “God Can’t.” Oord doesn’t just grapple with the problem, he sets out to solve it. While there will be critics who disagree, his solution will help many sufferers of trauma and tragedy hold onto their faith in the midst of pain. This book is a rare combination of depth and accessibility, truly written for the wounded. I recommend it to my students, parishioners, and therapy clients.”
