Out of the Whirlwind: Innocent Pain as a Challenge to God
Author/Artist: ROBERTS, ADRIAN
ISBN-10: 1789590671
ISBN-13: 9781789590678
Publisher: Sacristy Press
Price: AU$29.95
Description: How can a merciful God allow suffering and evil to happen?

Inspired by the Book of Job, Out of the Whirlwind is a reflection on the challenge posed to the existence of a good and powerful God by the issue of innocent suffering. It takes the form of the author's reflections as he sits in a children's ward by the bedside of his disabled son, who is dangerously ill and may be about to die.

The reflections include personal reminiscence, a consideration of some traditional arguments along with objections to them, and a couple of dream sequences, at the end of which, like Job himself in the biblical tale, the narrator receives God's answer "out of the whirlwind".

The five types are "The Way of Discipline," "The Contemplative-Mystical Way," "The Way of Practical Action," "The Way of Beauty," and "The Prophetic Way."
