Product description


Review from previous edition immensely ambitious [and] stunningly successful, repeatedly finding new levels of meaning. (Times Literary Supplement)

Eleonore Stump's magisterial treatment of the problem of evil ... is bold, meticulously argued, and highly nuanced. In terms of scope and power, Stump's book clearly ranks among the best book length treatments of the problem of evil. (European Journal for the Philosophy of Religion)

Eleonore Stump's major new book on the problem of suffering is perhaps the most important contribution to the field in decades ... reading this book is a thought-provoking spiritual journey which raises all kinds of fresh yet down-to-earth and urgent questions. Ultimately, it may have the potential to transform how we think about and do theology. (Theology)

original, insightful, and brilliant. (Religious Studies Review)

A truly magnificent achievement, the book is rich with compelling narratives from inside and outside the Judeo-Christian Scriptures. (Analysis)

a must-read for philosophers of religion and a very beneficial read for other philosophers and for other scholars of religion. It is without question a highly nuanced and philosophically deep book. (Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)

Eleonore Stump's Wandering in Darkness poses a learned, astutely crafted argument for the compatability of human suffering and God's existence, and in doing so it provides a number of innovations that will be of real interest to analytic philosophers of religion in particular and more generally to anyone curious about the so-called 'problem of evil' (Daniel Colucciello Barber, Journal of Religious Studies)

About the Author

Eleonore Stump is The Robert J. Henle, SJ, Professor of Philosophy at Saint Louis University, where she has taught since 1992. She received a Ph.D. in medieval studies and medieval philosophy from Cornell University in 1975.
