Overview

The problem of evil is one of the most discussed topics in the philosophy of religion. For some time, however, there has been a need for a collection of readings that adequately represents recent and ongoing writing on the topic. This volume fills that need, offering the most up-to-date collection of recent scholarship on the problem of evil. The distinguished contributors include J.L. Mackie, Nelson Pike, Roderick M. Chisholm, Terence Penelhum, Alvin Plantinga, William L. Rowe, Stephen J. Wykstra, John Hick, and Diogenes Allen. Including an introductory essay and a selected bibliography, this comprehensive and completely up-to-date collection is an invaluable guide to current scholarship in this highly debated area of the philosophy of religion.
Oxford Readings in Philosophy aims to bring together important recent writings in major areas of philosophical inquiry, selected from a variety of sources, mostly periodicals, which may not be conveniently available.

"This is an excellent work. The diversity of views represented make it most valuable as a text. I would recommend it highly."--Steve Lemke, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

"An excellent text, with several of the most important articles."--P.H. Sedgwick

"An excellent selection of key texts on the Problem of Evil and it makes them readily accessible to students. A very good comprehensive introduction."--Peter Davie, Christ Church College, Canterbury

"Those who are seeking, for themselves or their students, a compilation of the best work done on the problem of evil in the analytical tradition over the past three decades could ask for nothing better."--Ethics
