The number one philosophical question that confronts the church is not creationism, is not medical ethics, but is the antecedent issue of all these, theodicy, or the problem of evil. How do we confess to believe in a good and all powerful God, and yet accept the problem of evil? In The End of Christianity: Finding a Good God in an Evil World philosopher William Dembski addresses the arguments of books like The God Delusion, God is not Great, and The End of Faith by dealing with three specific claims:
1. God by wisdom created the world out of nothing.
2. God exercises particular providence in the world.
3. All evil in the world ultimately traces back to human sin.
Compelling and insightful, Dembski brings us to an understanding of what our Christian faith really demands; a radical realignment of our thinking so that we see God's goodness in creation despite the distorting effects of sin.
