Description: In a world riddled with disappointment and tragedy, what rationale do we have for believing in a benevolent God? In this book, John Stackhouse takes a historically informed approach to this dilemma, examining what philosophers and theologians have said on the subject and offering reassuring answers for thoughtful readers.

Stackhouse explores how great thinkers have grappled with the problem of evil -- from the Buddha, Confucius, Augustine, and David Hume to Martin Luther, C. S. Lewis, and Alvin Plantinga. He then asks if a world completety without evil is what we truly want. Would a life without suffering be a meaningful life? Could free will exist if we were able to choose only good? Stackhouse's analysis boldly affirms that the benefits of evil, in fact, outweigh the costs. Finally, he points to Christian revelation -- which promises the transformation of suffering into joy -- as the best guide to God's dealings with the world.
