Evile Does Not Have The Last Word by Eric Shoars

I tried my hardest to like this book. The dilemma of all-loving and all-powerful God existing while evil and suffering persists has always been an interesting topic to me. I have read a handful of great books by great theologians on this subject.

The author of Evil Does Not Have the Last Word gave me a copy of this book to review, and of course I was very interested based solely on the title.

Maybe it’s because I’m not big into comic book heroes or that I just could not connect with Eric Shoars’ experiences but reading this book was draining to me. I could not connect with the material at all. He definitely gave the book a personal touch by talking about his kids and his own individual challenges, but in the end I was simply uninterested in the presentation of ideas.

I’m not exactly sure where the book missed the mark, but it didn’t work for me.
