One of the largest problems posed to Christian apologists is the problem of evil. In this brief but complete critical study of atheist arguments, Dr. Warren treats every facet of the problem of evil with clear logic, and refutes the atheistic case. Not only does Dr. Warren make a case for theism, but he defends the view that God is a person who thinks and acts—a view in conflict with naturalistic views of religion who view God not as conscious, but as the “dynamic, internal structuring principle in the universe.” Dr. Warren’s engaging contribution to the discussion of the problem of evil offers pastors and laymen insight into this important apologetic question.

Warren makes his case against the theology of Bales and offers a different path haled by him and others in the restoration movement as a biblical view of divorce and remarriage.
