About the Author

Richard Rice is professor of religion at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California. He is the author of several books, including God?s Foreknowledge and Man?s Free Will and Reason and the Contours of Faith.


"In a fusion between good scholarship and practical usefulness, Rice succeeds to show that while suffering might not always make perfect sense, one can respond to it resourcefully. If only that, I believe his book achieves much." -- Iriann Irizarry, Seminary Studies 53 (Spring 2015)
