Where Is God When Evil Happens? (4 session study)

These powerful stories will help your group explore an important topic.

"People seeking after God have been confronted with the question for hundreds of years: If God is good, and God is powerful, then why is there so much evil in this world?

The modern term for this question is "the problem of evil." And it's an important issue for your group to discuss, explore, and find some answers. This video Bible study can help you do just that by examining real stories from people who have been confronted by evil—and who found God waiting."

Note: This video Bible study was created in partnership with Listen Up TV, a weekly television program exploring news and current affairs from a Christian worldview.
