In “God Can’t” Dr. Thomas Oord finally says what many have wanted to say for a long time. God is not ‘arbitrary.” God does not have “favorites.” God does not play games with his children. God loves, period.
This book will come as genuine good news to many, and as a source of great discomfort to others. Many other books that attempt to wrestle with the problem of evil, simply close by making the assertion that there really isn’t an answer. “God Can’t” isn’t one of those books. Tom offers an answer, maybe the answer.
I highly recommend “God Can’t” for persons dealing with pain, whether their own or that of someone they love.
