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

Editorial Reviews

" 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.'"
"If you are going to remember one thing about this book let it be this: value. . . . Further, the essays uniformly achieve a good balance between rigor and accessibility, giving the motivated lay reader a solid familiarity with the ongoing philosophical discussion relating to the problem of evil. . . . I'd like to commend the editors Meister and Dew for the yeoman's job they did in commissioning a diverse and ecclectic collection of essays on a wide range of topics. God and Evil is an excellent contribution to the literature."
"For thoughtful believers, this collection of essays in God and Evil by prominent Christian thinkers will be useful for reference and teaching. The book is academically solid and accessible to most readers. . . . In our age of pluralism and relativism, reading insightful arguments for Christian truth is encouraging and empowering for followers of Jesus committed to the Great Commission."
