About-

Everyone has experienced pain. No one is immune from loss and suffering. With all of the evil in this world, how can anyone rationally believe in a good and loving God? People who believe in God experience intense evil, yet they still retain their faith, claiming that God helps them in times of need. Still others claim that this same evil is proof that God does not exist; that if God were real, he would limit the suffering. If you have ever thought that it seems that things should be a certain way, that you are inclined toward believing, or not believing, in God because of the existence of evil, you are part of the conversation of the abductive problem of evil.

This book does more than just explore what modern philosophers on both sides of the aisle have claimed about God and evil. It also illuminates an intricate world that is crafted for people having free will, for people who make moral choices. For it is within the realm of this intricate world that we may find the answers we seek.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“If the problem of evil is your cup of tea, this is the latest installment in a cutting-edge treatment of many of the very top philosophers, presented in several key head-to-head comparisons. Highly recommended.”

—Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor & Chair, Philosophy Department, Liberty University



“How can the experience of seemingly gratuitous evil events and the existence of an omnibenevolent, omnipotent God be reconciled? Peter Morgan addresses this question through a regularity of systems approach by utilizing the intersection of the free will defense with his Free System Corollary. This book offers an important perspective for those seeking to further their understanding of how free will and regular systems permit natural and moral evil without impugning either the character or existence of God.”

—Douglas Scott, Professor of Bible and Theology Global University



“Peter J. Morgan interacts both critically and sympathetically with leading contemporary responses to the problem of evil. He seeks to build on the strengths and avoid the weakness of those arguments that have come before. His Free System Corollary is a well-reasoned and innovative contribution to that conversation. I recommend it for its able handling of the relevant issues, the contemporary literature, and as a model for saying something new about this perennial problem.”

—Jeff Magruder, Southwestern Assemblies of God University
