THE PROBLEM OF EVIL, 1E uses a diverse collection of essays to draw students into this robust and enduring philosophical topic. To address the tension between an omniscient and omnipotent God on one hand, and suffering on the other, this textbook employs essays from such thinkers as David Hume, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and Gottfried Leibniz. In addition, THE PROBLEM OF EVIL, 1E includes such perspectives as the feminist critique and Draper’s “skeptical theist” response.
