God Is Just Not Fair

On 4/3 Jon Keel wrote: I like a provocative book title and when finding a book title, this one met that criteria. The title offers a double meaning, initially I expected to pick up a book that explores the fairness of God and how Christians should respond when things don’t seem fair. In one sense, it kind of does…. Add ... God is Just Not Fair by Jennifer Rothschild
