"If God, Why Evil?" by Norman Geisler

In this highly intellectual book, Geisler knocks down many claims that atheists make about God not existing in an evil world. He uses bullet points and organized lists to clearly lay out each argument he makes. Bible verses are heavily used, with the majority of them being only referenced and not actually quoted on the page. What's more, Geisler does not just talk about pain and evil in an objective sense. No; he shares some deep and personal pain from his own life. While I do not agree with every single argument made in the book, the author does make some good points and points to how God is real and why evil is in the world. This would be a great gift to an atheist friend who likes solid arguments over "faith" talks.
