This is a fascinating analysis and response to the fundamental questions that face any believer today. Sadly becoming daily more topical, this book explores all aspects of evil—our contemporary and theological understanding, and the ways in which evil presents itself in society today. Fully grounded in the Bible, Evil and the Justice of God is sparkling, erudite, provocative and particularly relevant in the wake of new global terror attacks.

Accounts of cruelty, death and terrorism hit us every day. The phrase ‘the axis of evil’ resonates in our world, and evil seems to seep into all aspects of life. We are forced to ask fundamental questions about God and the nature of evil, which demand a theological resolution that is mature, profound and never glib.

N. T. Wright explores these pivotal questions with a fresh and engaging approach, combining the virtues of detailed scholarship with an accessible style. He neither ducks the awkward, nor avoids the unpalatable, but instead offers a new, often surprising perspective in his search for a meaningful response to the problem of evil.

Praise for the Print Edition

Wright puts evil in perspective by giving us a powerfully persuasive vision of the 'new heavens and new earth,' the ultimate reality in which we can already begin to participate. This is a book that every thoughtful Christian should read.

—John Wilson, editor, Books & Culture

Evil and the Justice of God unravels any skeptic's doubt that a loving God can exist in a world so full of suffering. Tom Wright offers a breathtaking glimpse into the mind and purposes of God. . . and a hope-filled plan for how we can reconcile a broken world with the kingdom to come.

—Peggy Wehmeyer, host, World Vision Report

N. T. Wright

Nicholas Thomas “Tom” Wright (1948–) has been named by Christianity Today as one of our time’s top theologians. He is currently professor of New Testament and early Christianity at St. Andrews University. Wright holds a bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s in Anglican ministry, and a DPhil, all from University of Oxford.

A fellow and chaplain at Cambridge from 1978 to 1981, he then served as assistant professor of New Testament language and literature at McGill University in Montreal. Before becoming a chaplain, tutor, lecturer, and fellow at Oxford in 1986, Wright served as dean of Lichfield Cathedral, canon theologian of Westminster Abbey, and bishop of Durham.

His academic work has usually been published under the name “N. T. Wright,” but works such as What St. Paul Really Said and Simply Christian, aimed at a more popular readership, were published under the less formal name of “Tom Wright.”

    I do enjoy reading Tom Wright's books, and this is no exception. I've read several books on Theodicy over the last year or so, and this has been the one that I have enjoyed the most. Wright's approach is one that is thoroughly bible-based and he has a strong focus on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in dealing with this subject. However, I think the real strength of the book is the discussion of Forgiveness, what real forgiveness is and how it is an often overlooked aspect when it comes to the problem of evil. If I were to highlight a weakness, it would be more of a disappointment: I would've enjoyed to hear more on the "Natural Evil" side of things - oh and as I often find with Wright's books, it was too short :)
