Theodicy in the Christian Tradition: A History
By: Stephen Vicchio
About the Book
Theodicy in the Christian Tradition: A History is an examination of what is called the Problem of Evil. If God is All Good, All-Knowing, and All-Powerful, then why is there so much evil and suffering in the world? This book analyzes perspectives from Ireanaus, in the second century to two prominent thinkers in the late twentieth century, John Hick and Alvin Plantinga. Between these two chapters, views are examined from the fourth century to the nineteenth century.
