Abstract

This book takes four fundamental questions of human existence, including the existence of evil and suffering, the pervasiveness of anxiety and fear, the quest for personal meaning, and the issue of whether a sense of purpose is to be found in human history and creation. Each of these questions is addressed, in each chapter, to one Gospel to see what it has to offer in the light of the good news revealed in Christ. The book demonstrates that, despite the gulf lying between our world and the ancient world of the New Testament, each Gospel contains an astonishing wealth of resources and a vibrant hope for human life today in all its confusion and struggle.
