Larry E. Ford answers the much-debated questions of theodicy in new book "God: Accused or Defended?"

God: Accused or Defended? by Larry E. Ford

’God: Accused or Defended?’ will provide answers to why God allows evil to exist in His creation—answers that have eluded some of the brightest minds among us.

During acts of terror and natural disasters many ask the question, “Where is God?” or begin to point blame. But who is responsible for the natural and moral evils that exist?

Many theologians and philosophers have tried to solve the paradox of theodicy but stray from or redefine the basic characteristics of God. Minister Larry E. Ford combines his decades of experience in biblical studies and support from the Bible to define the true role God, humans and adversarial spirits play in the evils of the world and to solve the long debated topic of why evil exists.

In Ford’s new book, he analyzes what other theories on evil leave out and takes a deeper look at scripture to show how God’s natural laws, moral laws and human sin play an important role in the existence of evil.

“’God: Accused or Defended?’ will provide answers to why God allows evil to exist in His creation—answers that have eluded some of the brightest minds among us,” Ford said. “Despite the negative appearance of the consequences mankind and creation suffer, the book points out the most amazing plan that God has in place for the ultimate salvation of mankind and all of creation.”
