Product Description

Reconciling the existence of God and evil is a conundrum in Christian theology, and a philosophical approach—rather than a theological one—dominates. Turning to the Bible's grand storyline, Scott Christensen examines how sin, evil, corruption, and death fit into the broad outlines of redemptive history. He argues that God's ultimate end in creation is to magnify his glory to his image-bearers, most notably by defeating evil through the atoning work of Christ.

Publisher's Description

“When I hoped for good, evil came, and when I waited for light, darkness came” (Job 30:26). We've all felt this at times in our lives. Evil is a constant reality, and it presents a challenge to those who believe in an all-good, all-powerful God. Where does evil come from? Why does God allow its presence? Reconciling the existence of God and evil is a conundrum for Christian theology. Many serious answers are dominated by philosophical approaches, however, and while these can be helpful, they miss an important angle: the grand storyline of the Bible. Scripture is not silent on these matters. Looking at the bigger picture, Scott Christensen examines how sin, evil, corruption, and death fit into the broad outlines of redemptive history. His biblical, theological, and exegetical response to the problems of evil argues that God’s ultimate end in creation is to magnify his glory to his image-bearing creatures, most notably by defeating evil through the atoning work of Christ.
