Michael Pearl discusses questions that trouble many but few dare to ask. "Why does God permit sin, sorrow, and suffering if He is who He claims to be?" "Why did God even make us capable of sinning? If He knows all and is all powerful, couldnt He have created a world without sin and death?" "Why did God create Lucifer if He knew it would result in sin?" Many doubt Gods good intentions, angry at the Deity whom the feel is responsible for their sufferings. Inmates in state prisons, students on college campuses, and our neighbours next door all ask the same accusing questions. Likewise the Christian parents standing beside a small grave are often heard challenging God. This book was written to answer a need in the author -- a need to speak, to document his world view. Over forty years of study reflection, interaction, and teaching has developed a perspective that, though not original in any single point, is unique as each individual is unique.

The forced draft due to the Vietnam War brought a sense of eternity to the youth, provoking them to seriously consider their souls. It was a time of a great move of the Spirit of God. As a teenager, dressed in tie-dye tee shirt and long drooping peasant skirt, she stood on the highways and byways sharing the gospel and seeing miracle after miracle of God's amazing grace. She married her life mate, Michael Pearl, in 1971.
