Confronting Evil

Theodecy in the Eastern Patristic Tradition
The problem of evil has been claimed by atheists as proof for the nonexistence of God. They charge that if God is good, then why does He allow all the crimes and injustices in the world to happen? Likewise, if a loving God created the world, then why did He also create natural disasters, deadly diseases, and the like? Put simply, how can God be omniscient, omnipotent, and benevolent? There is perhaps no greater challenge before the Orthodox Church than finding adequate answers to these questions. This book turns to the Church Fathers on the subject of theodicy to find the answers. It represents an outgrowth from a graduate course at the Pappas Patristic Institute at the Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, Massachusetts, over the last decade, which is entitled, Theodicy: The Church Fathers on the Victory of God.
