What About Evil? (Christensen)

SKU 978629955353


Reconciling the existence of God and evil has been a long-standing conundrum in Christian theology, yet a philosophical approach--rather than a theological one--dominates the discussion. Turning to the Bible's grand storyline, Scott Christensen examines how sin, evil, corruption, and death fit into the broad outlines of redemptive history. He argues that God's ultimate end in creation is to magnify his glory to his image-bearers, most notably by defeating evil through the atoning work of Christ.

  • "Christians take the problem of evil more seriously than anyone else. This book avoids simplistic philosophical solutions. Instead, the author appreciates that the historical fact of Christ's incarnation, life, death, resurrection, and return provides the only hope when we just don't know all the answers." -- Michael S. Horton "J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California"

    "If you're troubled by the question of why a good and omnipotent God would create a universe that includes evil"€"or if you are a Christian struggling to explain the problem of evil to someone else"€"you will greatly benefit from this book." -- John MacArthur "Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California; Chancellor Emeritus, The Master's University and Seminary"
