    Theodicy of Evil Outline:

    Ireanean Theodicy of Suffering/Evil

    Interesting re-frames:

    I’ve been reading the Message of Evil and Suffering from Peter Hicks, which makes a number of quality arguments in terms of the theodicy of evil.

    MLK on suffering “about the night sky & stars”
    I’ve been to the mountain top. My guess is there are others.

    There is a certain way in which Christ is the answer to the problem of suffering:
    “Jesus fell on the grenade, as it were, for me. He placed Himself in harm’s way so I could be saved. The cross proves that you and I are valued and loved beyond our wildest imaginings—so much, in fact, that we were died for.”

    —Michael Card, from “A Violent Grace: Meeting Christ at the Cross”

    Page 5, 6, and 15 are quite interesting. (5 and 6 are the table of contents)

    “Free will, though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having.”

    I ran across this today:

    * I seem to remember a guy who went to Liberty or Wheaton for undergrad (now in PhD in philosophy or theology) who keeps a pretty extensive blog. I need to go back and check it out.

    Also, Lennox & Guiness & Kreeft all have answers.
