"Evil is conquered as evil because God turns it back upon itself."
--From the Conclusion
Evil. All languages have a word for it, yet philosophers and theologians alike have been unsuccessful in trying to understand it. Where did it come from? Why is it here?
In an attempt to answer these questions, both Christians and non-Christians have turned to the only place they can--the Scriptures.
In this book, world-renowned author and scholar Henri Blocher explores three proposed solutions to the problem of evil, the downfalls to each solution, and the hope found in Scripture. In the end, we will find ourselves nowhere else than at the foot of the cross.
Henri Blocher is professor of systematic theology at the Faculte Libre de Theologie Evangelique in Vaux-sur-Seine, France, and he holds the newly endowed Gunther H. Knoedler Chair of Theology in the Biblical and Theological Studies Ph.D. program at Wheaton College. Widely recognized as a leading theologian and an evangelical statesman, Blocher has lectured or taught in schools in Europe, Australia, Africa, Canada, and the U.S. He has written many works in French and English, including In the Beginning, Songs of the Servant, and Original Sin: Illuminating the Bible.
