Christopher Hitchens was the most eloquent of the New Atheists. With great rhetorical polish and an encyclopedic mind for historical facts and literary quotations, he presents the case of anti-theism very effectively. Though now deceased, Hitchens' arguments continue to reverberate through his best-selling books and online presence. God, asserts Hitchens, would be, if he existed, the greatest of dictators. Religion, according to Hitchens, is morally bankrupt and madly irrational. The world is better off without them! But is this true? It is the purpose of this book to identify Hitchens' worldview in order to subject it to a critique that will powerfully expose its many flaws. Rather than a dictator, God will be shown to be a God of love. Christianity too will be revealed as a faith that ought to resist tyranny, provides the best foundation for intrinsic human value, and is a rational belief-system. In so doing, this book appeals to all who have been influenced or convinced by Hitchens' arguments to reconsider their position and refuse to rage against the light.

This book of essays asks the enduring, age-old question, "If God is loving and good, why is there so much evil?" It answers boldly, "Because God creates, sustains, and 'allows' evil in the world." This fact is the greatest and most impenetrable mystery of the Christian faith. Twelve categories of evil are thereafter described and analyzed. The case is made that God is actively involved in the manifestations of evil, mysteriously and paradoxically suffers with her beloved children, but is "in control" of it all. Whatever harms, causes suffering, or destroys persons, animals, or the precious earth will be eliminated forever, but only in God's good time. Until then, believers must overcome evil with good, maintaining faith in the God whose thoughts and ways are not ours.

Why does an all-powerful, all good God allow evil to happen? This book offers a lucid and accessible overview of this intractable problem. It presents the reflections of classical and contemporary thinkers, and gives clues as to how God governs the cosmos, while arguing that a comprehensive explanation is not available. Instead, it asks whether God can be trusted in spite of evil and suggests why the reply can ultimately be "Yes".

As a scholar and an activist, Glenn Harden seeks a theology of hope that can sustain opposition to evil. Looking into the face of evil without blinking, he uses the sex trade as an example of how horrendous evil can be. But he also uncovers stories of radical healing which are problematic for those who deny either God or the resurrection. This book is for those people of faith who walk in dark places and need deeper theological sustenance to sustain their journey.

C S Lewis And The Christian Worldview

C. S. Lewis is one of the most influential and beloved Christian writers of the past century, and interest in him continues to grow as books about his fantasy, fiction, and biography continue to appear. Although Lewis's personal journey was a deeply philosophical search for the most adequate worldview, the few extant books about his Christian philosophy focus on specific topics rather than his overall worldview. In this book, Michael Peterson develops a comprehensive framework for understanding Lewis's Christian worldview--from his arguments from reason, morality, and desire to his ideas about Incarnation, Trinity, and Atonement. All worldviews address fundamental questions about reality, knowledge, human nature, meaning, and so forth. Peterson therefore examines Lewis's Christian approach to these same questions in interaction with other worldviews. Accenting that the intellectual strength and existential relevance of Lewis's works rest on his philosophical acumen as well as his Christian orthodoxy--which he famously called "mere Christianity"--Peterson skillfully shows how Lewis's Christian thought engages a variety of important problems raised by believers and nonbelievers alike: the problem of evil and suffering, the problem of religious diversity, the problem of meaning, and others. Just as Lewis was gifted in communicating philosophical ideas and arguments in an accessible style, Peterson has crafted a major contribution to Lewis scholarship presented in a way that will interest scholars and benefit the general reader.

"Evil presents a profound and eternal challenge to humanity--why do we do what we know to be wrong? Why does not an all-good and omnipotent God step in and put an end to evil? [This book] looks at people's efforts to deal with evil, starting with ancient Israel and moving through the great figures of the Western tradition to the twenty-first century"--Back cover.
