With every earthquake and war, understanding the nature of evil and our response to it becomes more urgent. Evil is no longer the concern just of ministers and theologians but also of politicians and the media. We hear of child abuse, ethnic cleansing, AIDS, torture and terrorism, and rightfully we are shocked. N. T. Wright says that we should not be surprised.

For too long we have naively believed in the modern idea of human progress. In contrast, postmodern thinkers have rightly argued that evil is real, powerful and important, but they give no real clue as to what we should do about it. In fact, evil is more serious than either our culture or our theology has supposed. How then might Jesus' death be the culmination of the Old Testament solution to evil but on a wider and deeper scale than most imagine? Can we possibly envision a world in which we are delivered from evil? How might we work toward such a future through prayer and justice in the present? These are the powerful and pressing themes that N. T. Wright addresses in this book that is at once timely and timeless. Download and start listening now!

    " It's OK, but not impressive. "

    " I'm grateful for Wright's approach to the problem of evil in this book. His insistence on not arriving at simple answers makes the answers he discusses - ultimately forgiveness because of Christ's work on the cross overpowers evil - avoid triviality. The problem of evil is a hands on problem that required a very hands on solution from God. For us, our role to play in the problem is far less intellectual and far more hands on too. We are to be forgivers - evil undoers. "

    " This was a pretty good book. it certainly made me think. Wright makes a lot of good points about how we should view evil and God's response. I think Wright's main point is that we shouldn't try to explain it away. It is evil and shouldn't be taken lightly. Forgiveness is rejecting evil and then seeking reconciliation. This wasn't one of Wrights best books, but considering the length and the complexity of the topic it serves as a good intro. "

    " I think I'm going to have to call this one quits. N.T. Wright can be quite insightful, but he can also be quite boring. In this case, he doesn't appear to be saying anything new. Then again, I think maybe there's nothing new to say beyond what God said to Job. "
