Our church is quite large. Among our own pastoral staff is a deep talent bench of men who consistently and routinely deliver meaningful, impacting messages. When we do have guest speakers, they are often folks well known to the greater-Christian world.
Over the last 20 or so years my wife and I have experienced some amazing Gospel teaching and wonderful sermons. In that span of time I am unable to recall a message as powerful and compelling, completely irresistible as the one shared by Mark Clark. As soon as it was available online for viewing I watched it again and again; now losing count of the times I have viewed it. When it was mentioned that he had a book coming out, we ordered several copies of it. "The Problem of God" does not disappoint.
"The Problem of God" is at once scholarly yet easily comprehended, and passionate without being overbearing. Pastor Clark writes as he speaks; communicating with a near unique blend of authority and humility. For believers this book is a tremendous resource worth underlining and marking up for future reference and rereading again and again. The open-minded skeptic may have met his or her match with this work.
It is so well done.
I like how Mark uses alternative worldviews to compare Christianity to, instead of just using Biblical references to back up a Biblical belief (if someone doesn't believe the Bible, your Biblical proof/reference is useless). Instead, in each chapter Mark poses a "problem" of life or faith and then begins to explore possible conclusions/solutions based on what the "world" says, and compares that with what the Bible says. He refers to many well-respected scholarly works in his comparisons and does an excellent job of recording precisely where each reference comes from.
This is a great modern-day apologetic read that I would recommend to everyone, believers and non-believers alike!
I will read this book over and over again.
This book is a form of "preaching" that breaks down the barriers between the modern-day "skeptical" audience that may know nothing about the Bible or spiritual matters, and the real truth. Mark carefully writes to those who may be wrestling with the great questions of life. But he does not do so in a condescending way but he presents each argument with respect and clarity.
I highly recommend that if you are exploring issues of faith that you give yourself time to read this book. Open your heart and mind to what Mark presents here.
