Additional Information

For a lot of people, the biggest question about God is not, surprisingly enough, whether he exists. Instead, it is about whether God is truly good. Dinesh D'Souza, in his debates with leading atheists, quickly realized that many of those debates revolved around the question of evil in this world―how God could create a world that allowed such suffering and evil. In Godforsaken, Dinesh D'Souza takes these questions head on: Does God act like a tyrant? Is God really responsible for the evil in this world? Why is there suffering in the world? For the first time ever, Dinesh D'Souza approaches this topic with historical and scientific proof and presents to the reader why God is truly worthy of our worship and love.

Dines D'Souza is a good writer, and makes many good points in this book.

There is a fundamental flaw in his argument, however. I do not agree with D'Souza that everything that has ever occurred or will ever occur happens according to God's will. In other words, bad things do not happen because it is God's will that they happen.

Theodicy is much easier if we take the biblical story at face value. Lucifer rebelled against God, humans followed suit, and our suffering is a direct result of his and our rebellion. As David Bentley Hart, put it, "As for comfort, when we seek it, I can imagine none greater than the happy knowledge that when I see the death of a child I do not see the face of God, but the face of His enemy."

A second point I would like to make is that, as a scientist, I find it risky to make sweeping theological statements based on scientific theories. The biggest, most obvious problem is that even highly regarded scientific theories... Read more

Godforsaken was a carefully researched book that really spoke to both the intellectual and emotional side of any person, Christian or otherwise. Dinesh D'Souza broke his book into six parts. The first part is an introduction to the reality of suffering in this world... Read more
The author gives a scientific explanation of why God created the world in the way He did--showing scientific reasons for pain and suffering. I don't know if the arguments would convince an atheist, and as a Christian I believe we should, as the Bible says, walk by faith, not by sight.
