A popular introduction to arguments about the existence of evil in the world. Complex issues are explained in clear and entertaining language.
Another title in Peter Vardy’s much acclaimed Puzzle series, setting out the classic dilemma of Christian thought – why is there evil in the world if God is good? It seems that either God is not powerful enough, or not good enough to prevent it. Vardy draws on the work of Christian and secular writers to explain the issues.
Vardy looks at the argument of free will, the devil, natural evil and absolute value judgments.
‘A refreshing book which teachers and students of religion and philosophy, plus many lay people, will find clear and readable.’
‘He grapples with a vast theme with an admirable clarity of thought and purpose.’
