In this honest and personal book a well-known biblical scholar and theologian faces up to real problems for Christian faith. There are many things we don’t understand about God; Chris Wright is the first to admit that not only does he not have final answers, but that anybody who says they do is probably living in delusion. Together with the teacher of Ecclesiastes, Chris Wright affirms: ‘When I applied my mind to know wisdom and to observe labour that is done on earth—people getting no sleep day or night—then I saw all that God has done.
No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. People toil to search it out, but no one can discover its meaning. Even if the wise claim they know, they cannot really comprehend it.’ (Ecclesiastes 8:16-17)On the other hand, we are not left alone with tough and inexplicable questions. Chris Wright also teaches and offers encouragement from the Scriptures, so that those who are troubled by these questions can still sustain their faith by having perspectives and reflections of a theologian that at least lay to rest some of the erroneous theories and dogmatic fantasies.
