Journey Back to God explores Origen of Alexandria's creative, complex, and controversial treatment of the problem of evil. It argues that his layered cosmology functions as a theodicy that deciphers deeper meaning beneath cosmic disparity. Origen asks: why does God create a world where some suffer more than others? On the surface, the unfair arrangement of the world defies theological coherence. In order to defend divine justice against the charge of cosmic mismanagement, Origen develops a theological cosmology that explains the ontological status and origin of evil as well as its cosmic implications. Origen's theodicy hinges on the journey of the soul back to God. Its themes correlate with the soul's creation, fall and descent into materiality, gradual purification, and eventual divinization. The world, for Origen, functions as a school and hospital for the soul where it undergoes the necessary education and purgation. Origen carefully calibrates his cosmology and theology. He portrays God as a compassionate and judicious teacher, physician, and father who employs suffering for our amelioration. Journey Back to God frames the systematic study of Origen's theodicy within a broader theory of theodicy as navigation, which signifies the dynamic process whereby we impute meaning to suffering. It unites the logical and spiritual facets of his theodicy, and situates it in its third-century historical, theological, and philosophical context, correcting the distortions that continue to plague Origen scholarship. Furthermore, the study clarifies his ambiguous position on universalism within the context of his eschatology. Finally, it assesses the cogency and contemporary relevance of Origen's theodicy, highlighting the problems and prospects of his bold, constructive, and optimistic vision.

No matter what you have been through or what you may be going through, remember God loves you and He has not forgotten you. Throughout this book, you will find many scriptures reminding you of just how much He cares. The adversary tries to otherwise convince you. He is a liar and cannot be trusted. After all, his job is to steal, to kill, and to destroy; he will use anything and anybody to deceive you because he cares nothing about you. Trust God’s plans for your life! After all, He is the way, the truth and the light. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers and against the prince of darkness (Ephesians 6:12 NKJV). Everyone is on a Journey in life; we all have to end up somewhere—the choice is yours. It is God’s desire to bless you, but first you must be in order and in alignment with His word. The word of the Lord cannot return to Him void. So let go of the past hurt and disappointment and look toward your future. God has something great in store for you. Recognize your worth!! Many women, no matter the age, have suffered with identity and self-esteem issues; even with the flaws, you are still valuable.

The premise of this book is that God has designed a roadmap for Christians who have lost their way, so that they can return to Him and to a life of clean joy without regret, in the context of grace. Using many different scriptures and principles the author has spelled out the plan for return, which he says will work for any backslidden Christian who faithfully follow it. But the way back is not easy, which is why "Return To Joy" is written in a simple step-by-step style, to allow seekers to find their way back to God at their own pace. This is a self-help manual, not a great theological treatise. Anyone who can read and understand simple English should be able to use this book to help them get back to God and return to His joy.
