Publishers Description
Creative and original, here is D. Z. Phillips's most systematic attempt to address the problem of evil. He argues that the problem is inextricably linked to our conception of God and that the concept of God in recent philosophy of religion is problematic, even harmful. That intellectual inheritance, he claims, attempts to distinguish between logical and existential problems of evil and offers us distorted accounts of God's omnipotence and will. As a result, God is ridiculed out of existence or found unfit before the bar of decency. Yet Phillips elucidates in a second part a neglected tradition in which we reach a different understanding of God's presence amid suffering and which addresses the ultimate question of how God can be said to be with those who are crushed by life's afflictions. This new work is an ideal text for students of philosophy, religion, or theology, but it also speaks clearly to anyone who reflects seriously on the danger of adding to human evil by the way in which we write and think about it.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Problem of Evil & the Problem of God?

Good but for some reason a little hard to follow in places.   Feb 14, 2007
Being new to the thought of DZ Phillips I was very excited to read this work. While he does a good job on the topic, he is a bit overzealous in his criticism of other philosophers.Indeed, he seems to indite most of the Christian apologetics and philosophical enterprise with illegitimacy. Perhaps this is due to what appears to me to be a denigration of the place of logic and reason in the Christian life.

Sadly, I recently discovered he had passed away. I heard from a Christian philosopher and friend that while DZ can be very "biting" in his books,he was a wonderful person.
