Does the existence of suffering prove there is no God?

From Grenfell to Aleppo, the news is daily filled with fresh examples of anguish and suffering, violence and tragedy. Does a world in which towers burn, bombs explode, and loved ones suffer show that there is no God, at least not a loving God who cares for us? In Short Answers, we explore this deepest of questions, asking not just what God has said about evil, but whether he’s *done* anything.
