"Of all the questions students ask me as a campus minister, those on evil and suffering top the list. Brian Morley tackles this age old enigma head-on. His helpful response is biblically accurate and intellectually stimulating."
John Book (Campus Director, Campus Crusade for Christ)
"How can a good, all-powerful God allow evil and suffering in this world?" This question has been asked for millennia, and it is at the heart of what theologians call "the problem of evil." Drawing from his personal experiences, as well as from his notable academic credentials, Brian Morley provides his readers with biblical and practical insight into this important subject. For those wanting to think rightly about pain and suffering, God in the Shadows is a wonderful place to start.
John MacArthur, Chancellor Emeritus, The Master’s University and Seminary and Pastor–Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California
"This work is thorough in its scope covering these immensely crucial topics from the theological, philosophical, psychological and personal perspectives. It is well reasoned and practical. As a teaching chaplain I will highly recommend God in the Shadows to pastors and hospital chaplains as a learning tool and resource that provides an up to date framework regarding the crucial issues of life."
Chaplain, Phil Manly, USC Hospitals, Healthcare Chaplains Ministry Assn., Placentia, California
"Although suffering and evil are common to all peoples in all cultures, satisfying explanations for evil elude us. The issues are especially acute for theists who believe in an all good, all powerful and all knowing God. Professor Brian Morley has provided us with a wise, comprehensive and thoughtful exploration of suffering and evil within a Christian worldview. Believers and skeptics alike will benefit from this sensitive and sensible discussion."
