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.

Very Convincing and Quite Good

Mark Clark presents a compelling and convincing understanding of the tenets of God and the Bible. Through logic, reasoning and even the empirical method he (believe it or not) lays out how believing in God is far more logical than it's oppositional beliefs. Furthermore, through his deductive ways, Clark lays the groundwork upon which we can safely know the Bible's validity, Jesus' proof of who He is and claimed to be, and what motives are found at the end for why might a person really reject the blatant truth that is within their grasp. For answers to these inquiries and more, you'll need to venture no further than this read through.

Love the skeptics point of view

A skeptics POV helps answer questions Christians have as well. I really enjoy the authors voice too!

Great book for believers and skeptics alike

This book addresses many of the obstacles that people have with Christianity in our secular society. If you are a skeptic, I challenge you to read this book and think about the material in a self-critical way. Mark Clark presents the material in a direct, factual, and relatable way. He tackles big questions by providing evidence and addresses many atheist arguments (think Stephen Hawking). He builds on the arguments of many other critical Christian thinkers and apologists such as C.S. Lewis, J.R Tolkien and Timothy Keller.

Learned so much!

I grew up in the Christian church but now that I am older I really couldn’t answer the question “why do you believe in God”. After listening to this audio book I can answer that question.

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.
