The query of evil―its origins, its justification, its solution―has plagued humankind from the start. each iteration increases the query and struggles with the responses it truly is given. questions about the character of evil and the way it's reconciled with the reality claims of Christianity are unavoidable; we have to be ready to answer such questions with nice readability and sturdy faith.
God and Evil compiles the easiest considering on all angles at the query of evil, from the various most interesting students in faith, philosophy and apologetics, including
- Gregory E. Ganssle and Yena Lee
- Bruce Little
- Garry DeWeese
- R. Douglas Geivett

- Jill Graper Hernandez
- Win Corduan
- David Beck

What is the percentage of animals in Zoo B that are mammals?
