5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive and creative account, 5 Jun. 2007

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The Reality of God and the Problem of Evil (Paperback)
1. This book is a good outline of the debate up to this point (the author traces past arguments/possible positions on the problem of evil and the problem from evil fairly and concisely.)

2. His creative defense of the existence of God in the face of evil still faces the central problem of many defenses: He turns God into something very different from the common conception of God (personal, loving, etc). However, his arguments for this God (e.g. how God can be righteous without being personal in our sense, etc)are very strong/creative.

3. How not to exonerate God are excellent chapters showing the fallacies of past attempts. I did not completely understand his critique of free will defense though.

In the end, I still feel like he greatly changes the concept of God in order to deal with evil... in ways that will be unacceptable to many theists. However, he exposes many a fallacy on both sides of the debate throughout this book and takes this dialogue to the next stage.

This review is from: The Reality of God and the Problem of Evil (Paperback)
This is a good book to read after you've got your head around Edward Feser's The Last Superstition, or something like it
