Can God Be Trusted? : Faith and the Challenge of Evil
Why does an all-powerful, all good God allow evil to happen? This book offers a lucid and accessible overview of this intractable problem. It presents the reflections of classical and contemporary thinkers, and gives clues as to how God governs the cosmos, while arguing that a comprehensive explanation is not available. Instead, it asks whether God can be trusted in spite of evil and suggests why the reply can ultimately be "Yes."
