If God knew there would be suffering in the world why did he create something rather than nothing and why does he not now intervene on our behalf? In an interview that was first aired on Radio 2 on Palm Sunday, Sharon Dirckx introduces this topic, which she has addressed in her new book “Why?” There are no easy answers to the problem, but she affirms that God does care immensely about us and that he intervened on our behalf to give us hope of a new life where there would be no suffering.
