Publisher's Description

Life is at once wonderful and appalling, beautiful and horrific. How can we live with this contradiction? And how can we believe in a just and loving God in the face of all the evils in the world?

‘A profoundly radical reflection on one of the central issues in theology.’
Church Times

‘A major new defence of Christianity that does not flinch from asking difficult questions about the kind of God who could have created our world.’
The Bookseller

‘A heartening book, confronting the hardest questions with wide knowledge and deep wisdom.’
John Carey, Chief Literary Reviewer, Sunday Times

‘An eloquent, honest and engaging case for Christian faith.’
The Tablet

‘The best case that could be made.’
Andrew Copson, Director, British Humanist Association

‘A deeply interesting book.’
Mary Warnock DBE, FBA, FMedSci

‘A book of rare power – such that, once you have finished it, you know you have been changed.’
Ian S. Markham, Dean and President, Virginia Theological Seminary
