Overview

Herbert McCabe was one of the most original and creative theologians of recent years. Numerous volumes of unpublished typescripts left behind by him have been published following his untimely death in 2001. McCabe was deeply immersed in the philosophical theology of Aquinas and was responsible in part for the notable revival of interest in the thought of Aquinas in our time. Here, he tackles the problem of evil by focusing and commenting on what Aquinas said about it. What should we mean by words such as good, bad, being, cause, creation, and God? In answering these questions, McCabe demonstrates why evil does not disprove God’s existence. He also explains how we can rightly think of evil in a world made by God. McCabe’s approach to God and evil is refreshingly unconventional, yet it is also very traditional. It will interest and inform anyone seriously interested in the topic.

Herbert McCabe (1926-2001) was an English Dominican priest, theologian and philosopher, who was born in Middlesbrough in the North Riding of Yorkshire. After studying chemistry and philosophy at Manchester University, he joined the Dominicans in 1949, where under Victor White he began his life-long study of the works of Thomas Aquinas. He was also a student of Columba Ryan. He is often confused with the Irish oarsman of the same name.
