About this product
- DescriptionTheodicy attempts to resolve how a good God and evil world can coexist. The neo-atheist view in this debate has dominated recent bestseller lists through books like The God Delusion (Richard Dawkins), God Is Not Great (Christopher Hitchens), and The End of Faith (Samuel Harris). And their popularity illuminates a changing mental environment wherein people are asking harder questions about divine goodness. Surprisingly, these books please intelligent design champion William Dembski, because They would be unnecessary if Christianity were t again a live issue. Entering the conversation, Dembski s provocative The End of Christianity embraces the challenge to formulate a theodicy that is both faithful to Christian orthodoxy and credible to the new mental environment. He writes to make peace with three claims: (1) God by wisdom created the world out of thing. (2) God exercises particular providence in the world. (3) All evil in the world ultimately traces back to human sin. In the process, Dembski brings the reader to a fresh understanding of what the end (result) of Christianity really means: the radical realignment of our thinking so that we see God s goodness in creation despite the distorting effects of sin in our hearts and evil in the world.Endorsements: The End of Christianity towers over the others in profundity and quality . . . I have read very few books with its deep of insight, breadth of scholarly interaction, and significance. From w on, one who is working on a Christian treatment of the problem of evil can afford to neglect this book. J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University and author of The God Question A thought-provoking and well-worth reading book by a brilliant evangelical thinker on the perennial and puzzling problem of how to explain physical evil in the world before the Fall. I could t put it down. It has so much intellectually stimulating material in it. Norman Geisler Believers have badly needed the kind of compelling case for biblical theodicy provided in Dr. Dembski's new book-grounded, as it is, t in traditional philosophical arguments (often t merely obtuse but irrelevant in today's scientific climate), but in intelligent design, of which Dr. Dembski is the world's foremost academic proponent. John Warwick Montgomery William Dembski is a first-rate scholar who has focused his attention on the perennial challenge to Christianity: Why does God allow such evil and cruelty in the world? While staying well within the bounds of Christian orthodoxy, Dembski offers fresh insights that can truly be described as groundbreaking. Whether you end up embracing his solution or t, The End of Christianity is a book all Christians-and even n-Christians-need to wrestle with. We enthusiastically recommend it. Josh and Sean McDowell, co-authors of Evidence for the Resurrection and More Than A Carpenter
