"Feinberg's classic treatment of the problem of evil has been a standard treatment of this philosophical issue for some time. Coming from the Augustinian/Reformed tradition, it is a vigorous defense of both God's sovereignty and human responsibility. This new edition makes an already great book even better, as Feinberg has been able to incorporate new material in his debates and conversation with people like Rowe and Plantinga. This is surely one of the most important books ever written on the problem of evil. Those who ignore it will find their own understanding of the issue impoverished, especially in light of the current discussion."
—Chad Owen Brand, Associate Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"The Many Faces of Evil presents an excellent overview and response to the logical, evidential, and existential aspects of the problem. Those who expect insightful, decisive analyses from John Feinberg will not be disappointed. Crossway Books is also to be commended for its ongoing tradition of strong scholarly publications. This is a 'must read' text."
—Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor and Chair, Philosophy Dept, Liberty University and Theological Seminary
"In this updated edition, Feinberg continues to press home the message that there are many versions of the problem of evil and that, in fact, there are many successful solutions to these versions as well. Feinberg gives a thorough presentation of the alternatives as well as of his own position. A valuable resource!"
—Winfried Corduan, Professor of Philosophy and Religion, Taylor University
"This latest edition of The Many Faces of Evil is a gem. It provides extensive analyses of various statements of the problem of evil as well as responses that can be offered from a variety of Christian perspectives. Feinberg shows that both the problem and the response to the problem will vary, depending on one's understanding of God and of evil. His own position is offered in dialogue with major classic and contemporary discussions of the problem of evil."
—Ronald J. Feenstra, Director of Doctoral Studies, Calvin Theological Seminary
"The Many Faces of Evil is a thorough, clear, and highly competent treatment of a perennial problem. At times, it is painful and moving to read. All of us can learn much from it."
—Keith E. Yandell, Julius R. Weinberg Professor of Philosophy, Emeritus, University of Wisconsin Madison
John S. Feinberg (PhD, University of Chicago) is department chair and professor of biblical and systematic theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is the author of Ethics for a Brave New World (with Paul D. Feinberg) and is general editor of Crossway’s Foundations of Evangelical Theology series.
This is a difficult book to read and will take you a very long time to really digest.
He separates theology from philosophy/logic and parses the arguments so carefully that it can be exhausting at times to read.
The moral problem of evil deals with the seeming inconsistent position that God is all good but there is evil in the world.
This book covers it all. Whether you are an Armenian or a Calvinist, this book will answer your questions. I recommend it highly.Published 3 months ago by Carlisle Percival
