Product Description

The baffling age-old question "If there is a good God, why is there evil in the world?" has troubled ordinary people and great thinkers for centuries. God, Power, and Evil illuminates the issues by providing a critical historical survey of theodicy as presented in the works of major Western philosophers and theologians such as: Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus, Augustine, Aquinas, Spinoza, Luther, Calvin, Leibniz, Barth, John Hick, James Ross, Fackenheim, Brunner, Berkeley, Albert Knudson, and E.S. Brighton. Griffin also offers a brilliant constructive statement of an understanding of theodicy written from the perspective of the "process" philosophical and theological thought inspired primarily by Alfred North Whitehead and Charles Hartshorne.
