"God and the Problem of Evil is the best anthology on this important topic on the market. Highly recommended for classroom adoption." Bill Wainwright, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
"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
From the Back Cover
God and the Problem of Evil considers the question of whether the amount of seemingly pointless malice and suffering in our world counts against the rationality of belief in God, a being who is understood to be all-powerful, all-knowing, and perfectly good.
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.

I wish to make one further comment on section 3. This is where a majority of the debates are taking place. Surprisingly, the logical problem of evil has been widely agreed upon to be of little difficulty for theistic belief. As such the focus in the contemporary scene has been on whether or not evil provides evidence against theistic belief. Does the existence of evil make theistic belief less likely than atheism? This section contains a great back and forth between Rowe arguing against theism, and Mike Bergmann and Daniel Howard-Snyder critiquing Rowe's argument.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the problem of evil or in philosophy of religion.
