Why 'I don't know' is a good start on God and suffering

24 July 2012

US apologist Lee Strobel has done a great job in tackling sensitively the age-old question of God and suffering, particularly following the shooting in Colorado, now officially the worst mass shooting in US history, with 12 killed and more than 50 injured.
