Sintesi dell'editore

With every earthquake and war, understanding the nature of evil and our response to it becomes more urgent. Evil is no longer the concern just of ministers and theologians but also of politicians and the media. We hear of child abuse, ethnic cleansing, AIDS, torture and terrorism, and rightfully we are shocked. N. T. Wright says that we should not be surprised.

For too long we have naively believed in the modern idea of human progress. In contrast, postmodern thinkers have rightly argued that evil is real, powerful and important, but they give no real clue as to what we should do about it. In fact, evil is more serious than either our culture or our theology has supposed. How then might Jesus' death be the culmination of the Old Testament solution to evil but on a wider and deeper scale than most imagine? Can we possibly envision a world in which we are delivered from evil? How might we work toward such a future through prayer and justice in the present? These are the powerful and pressing themes that N. T. Wright addresses in this book that is at once timely and timeless.

Best Book on the Problem of Evil

I have been wrestling with the philosophical problem of evil most of my life, first In philosophy, then in theology, and then for decades as a clinical psychologist. This book places the philosophical problem of evil in its proper context, addresses the key questions, all the while inspiring the reader to behold the love of God with jaw-dropping awe and gratitude.

The Title is Misleading

It didn't help me with the problem of Evil but very helpful with understanding Forgiveness.

Good Answers, but not full.

This book needed to address the question of why, which it spacifically did not do. It did discuss the qestion of justice, and what God plans to do about evil, but with no answer to the questin of why a good God allows evil it really puts the cart before the ohrse.
