Product Description

God and Evil comprises the best thinking on all angles on the question of evil, from some of the finest scholars in religion, philosophy and apologetics, including:
  • Gregory E. Ganssle
  • Yena Lee
  • Bruce Little
  • Garry DeWeese
  • R. Douglas Geivett
  • James Spiegel
  • Jill Graper Hernandez
  • Win Corduan
  • David Beck
The question of evil-its origins, its justification, its solution-has plagued humankind from the beginning. Every generation raises the question and struggles with the responses it is given. Questions about the nature of evil and how it is reconciled with the truth claims of Christianity are unavoidable; we need to be prepared to respond to such questions with great clarity and good faith.

With additional chapters addressing "issues in dialogue" such as hell and human origins, and a now-famous debate between evangelical philosopher William Lane Craig and atheist philosopher Michael Tooley, God and Evil provides critical engagement with recent arguments against faith and offers grounds for renewed confidence in the God who is "acquainted with grief."

Features
  • Provides a who's who of Christian philosophy and apologetics
  • Models deep and passionate inquiry into the problem of evil and suffering
  • Includes a full transcription of the much-publicized debate between William Lane Craig and Michael Tooley
