Publisher's Summary

The Problem of God is written by a skeptic who became a Christian and then a pastor, all while exploring answers to the most difficult questions raised against Christianity. Mark grew up in an atheistic home, and after his father's death, began a skeptical search for truth through exploring science, philosophy, and history, asking the big questions of life, and eventually finding answers in Christianity.

In a disarming, winsome, and persuasive way, The Problem of God responds to the top 10 questions people raise against God, and Christianity, including, among others:

  • The Problem of Science
  • The Problem of God's Existence
  • The Problem of the Bible
  • The Problem of Evil and Suffering
  • The Problem of Hell
  • The Problem of Sex
  • The Problem of Hypocrisy

Each chapter answers the specific challenge using a mix of theology, philosophy, and science on the one hand, while also using stories and anecdotes. It's apologetics for the rest of us, focused on both convincing the skeptic, and informing the Christian.

Deeply moving and filled with GOD'S truth.

I am a Christian and have a faith that has been with me my whole life, but it has always felt some what lacking in some of belief in miracles and things since I have a sceptical heart. Though I always had a hope the Bible is true and JESUS came to save me I often have my doubts. So praise be to GOD a man took the time to search in all these different theologies and historical facts and scientific data to find the most convincing evidence to the truth and existence of GOD and JESUS his son. Mark both writes and reads like what he is saying is true, there is a passion you can feel so much so that every chance I got I was listening to this recording till the finish and now LORD willing I will do something about it and not sit by and go on the same as before.

Fantastic information. Addicting!

I couldn’t stop listening. Such compelling arguments. Perspectives I had never considered before. Valid statistics and information. Sound sources and advice on how to better understand the existence of God from a scientific and philosophical stance. I’ve quoted this book at least a dozen times since finishing it and recommended to many people.

challenging and provocative

The content and delivery are clear, concise, reasoned and important. Our creation is worth exploring, and the answers are out there to be found, seek and find, ask and find answers; books like this help that exploration, that natural inquisitiveness.

Mind...blown!

I’m a Christian and I bought this book with bad intentions; to learn how to beat the skeptics. As I listened, I realized that I had a lot to learn, and that I’m a skeptic who needed to know more. I am the very person I set out to defeat. The information is extremely powerful and the delivery is passionately delivered. Do yourself a favor and dive deep into this book. I need to listen to this 10x before I will have a solid understanding of the rich information it contains.

Must Read for skeptics and followers of Jesus!

Detailed work on the problems Christians must deal with. I have met Mark and he is the real deal. Nice to have it narrated by him.

Frusteratingly circular logic

He zeroes in on minor holes and/or inconsistencies as reasons to wholly reject other beliefs systems, while charging that everything in the bible is airtight and has never been "legitimately" challenged. I say "legitimately" because he sets up weak strawmen such as "Aethiests belive that: First there was nothing, then something came from that nothing for no reason and boom! Humans appeared!? That just doesn't make sense!" (paraphrased example)

Essentially uses the "Chewbacca Defense".

Perspective

what makes this book special is the way that Mark from his own challenges communicates a concise Christian message on an array of topics. This perspective allows the book to be especially meaningful. I had to listen to it twice!
