The problem of evil and suffering is a black hole for many of us. It is difficult - even impossible - to pray to a God of love in the presence of so much pain. And the Church is not always helpful. Perhaps, Andrew Clitherow suggests in this prophetic book, it is time to lose the version of Christianity that Western consumerism has produced, and to find a new way. Using insights from evolutionary theory, socio-biology and theology, he offers an accessible Christian spirituality which, centred in creative love, becomes a way of life. 'The history of the world is the history of the progress of love at the expense of evil.' In this exhilarating account of love's progress, "Creative Love in Tough Times" calls us to rediscover the Christian faith and to own it for ourselves.
