5.0 out of 5 stars Profound and provocative, 5 Sep 2010
By 
Mr. Simon R. Young "bluntknife" (Kent, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
A succinct and profound essay on what may and may not be said about suffering from the standpoint of Christian theology. Hart takes aim at both 'opportunistic' atheistic attacks on Christianity and well-intentioned but misguided Christian 'explanations' of evil. In setting out his argument, Hart refers to many of the intellectual giants in the Christian tradition, but he explains subtle ideas carefully and lucidly. This is not an easy book and it demands at least a second reading. Fortunately it is relatively short! I for one will be reading more from this authoritative interpreter of the Christian tradition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional book on the Problem of Evil, and more general Theology, 14 July 2010
By 
Mr. J. E. Norman (London) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
In this book, Hart starts off by discussing the problem of evil with relation to the Tsunami, and comparing them to Voltaire's famous criticism. This is only the beginning, as after a short while he discusses the far more profound version of the problem of evil (Dostoevsky's) and some more general aspects of living as a Christian in the fallen world. His arguments are so persuasive that one struggles to reject any of them. The only criticism of Hart I have ever heard is that he writes in such a way that one cannot disagree with him (Rowan Williams), and this is evident in this book, which is exceptionally well written. Hart could show anyone why the problem of evil is both the biggest problem, and one that every Christian has to live with.
