Product description


Creation, fall, incarnation, and atonement are ... interwoven with the theme of suffering in a profoundly original way. (Theological Book Review)

Paul S. Fiddes has now provided the most comprehensive and thorough study of the issues yet to emerge. His treatment of the sources is accurate and probing ... this is a valuable and thought-provoking book. (Daniel W. Hardy, Expository Times)

this important survey illuminatingly explains how human suffering can be understood in the light of God's response to creation (Dan Cohn-Sherbok, University of Kent, Theology)

the lasting impression of the book is of one of the livelier minds of British theology opening up, with courage and rational persuasiveness, one of the critical contemporary theological topics (David F. Ford, Journal of Theological Studies) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Paul S. Fiddes is at Regent's Park College, Oxford. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
