about this item

Many people argue that the presence of evil in the world is proof that God cannot exist, or if He does exist, cannot be good or all-powerful.

In Why Is There Evil in the World (and So Much of It?), Greg Welty uses biblical exegesis alongside his experience as a philosopher to present a different conclusion: that God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of the world, really does work all things for good.

A must-read for anyone struggling with the issue of evil in the world.

Topics discussed include:

  • What is the Problem of Evil?
  • The Greater-Good Theodicy: A Threefold Argument for Three Biblical Themes
  • Licensing the Greater-Good Theodicy: God's Sovereignty over Evil
  • Limiting the Greater-Good Theodicy: The Inscrutability of God's Purposes
  • Can Free Will or the Laws of Nature Solve the Problem of Evil?
  • Objections
  • Appendix: Going Beyond Job, Joseph, and Jesus for the Greater-Good Theodicy
Why Is There Evil in the World (and So Much of It?) is the third book in the series The Big Ten: Critical Questions Answered, a Christian apologetics series that addresses 10 commonly-asked questions about God, the Bible, and Christianity. While easy to read, each book is challenging and thought-provoking, dealing with subjects ranging from hell to science. Previous titles in the series include Why Should I Believe Christianity? by James N. Anderson and Does Christianity Really Work? by William Edgar.
