Why the Universe is the Way It Is

FYI - I have posted links to Hugh Ross' latest book, Why the Universe is the Way It Is, along with the extended appendices (available only on the RTB web site) in the right sidebar.

I think Hugh might say this is one of the most important books he's written. A major component to the book is that he is trying to address the question, Why didn't God make a universe free from evil and suffering? It's a question that comes up a lot with Christians (especially young-earth creationists) and non-Christians alike.

I had the privilege of giving theological feedback about the manuscript before it went to the publisher. Even if you don't agree with every point in the book, I think Hugh raises so many interesting points that it's worth a careful read. Ideally, the book should stimulate discussion on this topic in ways that haven't been considered before.

One final note - In my opinion, Why the Universe reveals, once again, what a truly novel thinker Hugh Ross really is.
