Item description for Why?: Reflections on the Problem of Evil by Carmen Dicello...

Nothing so baffles the mind or staggers the soul than the reality and sheer intensity of human suffering. How can we explain such widespread malevolence in a world ruled by a benevolent God? What is the proper response to such pain and puzzlement? Skeptics and believers alike are compelled to ask, "Why?"

Some have advocated an overly confident and simplistic theodicy, while others have retreated to a place of doubt or even unbelief. But neither of these options will do. Carmen DiCello urges that we reject both unwarranted confidence and outright skepticism, favoring an approach in which human knowledge and human ignorance are held in tension.

Providing a helpful framework for thinking through these issues, DiCello balances what we can know with what we can't, showing that there is reason enough to believe along with ample cause to rest our hearts and minds in a good, sovereign, but also mystifying God. Why? provides spiritual and intellectual guidance for all who are willing to venture into these troubling waters, and who desire to emerge with a realistic faith and a sustaining hope.

Simply Riveting!  Jun 30, 2008
"This book is brilliant. Dr. DiCello captivated this reader from cover-to-cover and left me with a more profound understanding of the issues pertaining to the existence of evil. The book is very well orchestrated and is a must read for anyone who has ever contemplated this topic."
Excellent book!  May 19, 2007
DiCello's book on the problem of evil does an excellent job of responding to this important subject theologically and pastorally; with intellectual rigor and sensitivity. Unlike many other books on this topic, Why? covers the difficult questions people have about evil and suffering in the world, while remaining very readable to a wide audience.
Perplexed theologians and philosophers for ages  May 4, 2007
The "Problem of Evil" in a world created and maintained by an all-powerful and all-loving God has perplexed theologians and philosophers for ages. Not only have high thinkers grappled with it, but millions of the so-called "common people" have felt heartbreak when languishing under the pain of evil and suffering. From the sage to the serf, from the philosopher to the pauper, from the theologian to the tradesman, all have bitterly cried out "Why?" In Dr. DiCello's book, all of the answers are not given. This is to be expected. No simple, pat answers here. Dr. DiCello challenges us to view the "Problem of Evil" from a balanced biblical worldview. His insights drawn from Scripture give us some answers but mostly they draw us into a deeper sense of awe for our all-powerful and all-loving God.
