I have just finished the newest book by Norman Geisler which in a few short pages answers the question of evil in the world. This book is not meant to be an exhausted study of evil but in a few short pages provides concise answers to questions raised by atheist as well as Christians.
Geisler looks at three views of evil, the nature and origin of evil as well as why evil persists. He also looks at the problem of physical evil, pain, and why hell. In each instance Geisler give answers to the issues brought up by atheists that all of us can use in defense of the faith.
Finally the three appendixes cover animal death before the fall, proofs for God and a very well written article on the doctrinal problems with the short novel “The Shack”
This is a great book for the mature believer as well as anyone with questions about evil.
Have a blessed day,
