The God We Don't Understand: An Idea for a Small Group Study

Categories Ministry

It's no secret that people struggle to understand God.

Some are confounded by the problem of evil, wondering if God is so good, why is life so bad? Others can't reconcile the God of the Old Testament with the God of the New. Then there's the end of the world, and the possibility that some will be eternally lost.

Where can people turn to find some answers—ones that take seriously their questions and doubts?

Enter Christopher Wrights's thoughtful book The God I Don't Understand.

In his own words, it's a book that "tries to bring biblical teaching, personal faith, pressing questions, and life experience together" (14) so that those who are troubled by their tough questions can still sustain their faith.

The best part is, we've made it easy to launch a small group study using the book:
