Editorial Reviews

Light Magazine Canada
"God and Evil provides critical engagement with recent arguments against faith and offers grounds for renewed confidence in the God who is 'acquainted with grief.'"
Randal Rauser
"If you are going to remember one thing about this book let it be this: value. . . . Further, the essays uniformly achieve a good balance between rigor and accessibility, giving the motivated lay reader a solid familiarity with the ongoing philosophical discussion relating to the problem of evil. . . . I'd like to commend the editors Meister and Dew for the yeoman's job they did in commissioning a diverse and ecclectic collection of essays on a wide range of topics. God and Evil is an excellent contribution to the literature."
Charlie Self
"For thoughtful believers, this collection of essays in God and Evil by prominent Christian thinkers will be useful for reference and teaching. The book is academically solid and accessible to most readers. . . . In our age of pluralism and relativism, reading insightful arguments for Christian truth is encouraging and empowering for followers of Jesus committed to the Great Commission."
