Why does a righteous and sovereign God tolerate wrongdoing? How are the divine attributes reconciled with the triumph of the godless? Why do the wicked prosper and rule over the righteous? Why does God raise up ‘ruthless and impetuous’ nations to execute judgement on his own people? These are some of the questions that perplexed Habakkuk, challenged his faith and caused him to question God’s government of the world. And these are some the questions that still perplex Christians today. Time Shenton helpfully addresses these points in a clear and substantial exposition of the text of Habakkuk.
