"This is a splendid and unique collection. It contains both explicit and implicit dialogue. It is beautifully balanced between atheistic and theistic perspectives. And for its size it is remarkably comprehensive, covering both logical and evidential problems and both theodicies and defenses. Paul Draper, Florida International University
Beginning with historically significant essays by Leibniz and Hume, the book then focuses on contemporary discussions of the problem of evil. The volume concludes with three important articles that sketch an explanation of why God might need to permit the terrible evils that abound in our world.
The study of these essays and replies will provide students with a thorough understanding of the central issues involved in the problem of evil.
