What Is God Doing In Heaven When There Are So Many People Suffering?

This book is but an attempt to rehabilitate the image of God, distorted a millennium ago in order to defend the profane interests of the Church. Does it finally manage to save God’s face? Will God be liberated of his horrific mask of Wrathfulness in which he had been disguised with a view to petrify and facilitate control over lay-people? The author provides an innovative and challenging answer to the question from the title of the book, and thus unravels an entire spectre of meaningful life reflections, bound to spontaneously embark the reader on an interesting, even exciting adventure of a continuous mental journey.

“Do not seek the truth in this book. In it, you will only find the starting points for further reflection, for an evolution of cognitive knowledge, mostly that which consider the point of how it can be that God, supposedly almighty and good, tolerates so much agonizing pain. Horrible suffering is endured by billions of people and by even more other lifeforms, while God (the omnipotent almighty entity which could and should act in this instance) does practically nothing. What kind of a God is this – if, indeed, it even exists?”
