Evil and the Cross is a must read. In the end, we will find ourselves nowhere else than at the foot of the cross

Evil and the Cross is a must read. It should be required of every theologian and every seminarian (the book actually began as a series of articles in Hokhma, a French journal for theology students). But, speaking as a pastor, it is just the sort of theology pastors should read as well. In the end, we will find ourselves nowhere else than at the foot of the cross. Henri Blocher is professor of systematic theology at the Faculte Libre de Theologie Evangelique in Vaux-sur-Seine, France, and he holds the newly endowed Gunther H. Knoedler Chair of Theology in the Biblical and Theological Studies P. program at Wheaton College.

The problem of evil-why is there evil in a world proceeded from Absolute Goodness and ruled by Sovereign Benevolence?-has been the perennial torment . Henri Blocher, "Exploring the quasi concept and the area of evil".

The problem of evil-why is there evil in a world proceeded from Absolute Goodness and ruled by Sovereign Benevolence?-has been the perennial torment of the human mind. Many thinkers have designed solutions (theodicies) in which the notion of the possible plays a key role. While common sense readily admits that evil must have been originally possible if it arose it the midst of creation, the simplicity of such reasoning is not without its problems. The notion of possible is fraught with ambiguities and may be misleading when used uncritically.

A world renowned author and scholar grapples with the problem of evil in a world supposedly ruled by a God who is all-loving and all-powerful. ISBN13:9780830815265.

In this book, world-renowned author and scholar Henri Blocher explores three proposed solutions to the problem of evil, the downfalls to each solution, and the hope found in Scripture.

There have been many works on the problem of the existence of evil. Henri Blocher gives his explanation in this book. The book is not a long one. He is a Christian theologian and his approach is to study the matter from the Bible. It is one of the best presentations of the subject that I have read. It is a hard topic. I lost a six year old son to cancer and was sitting by his side when he took his last breath on Friday morning, November 14, 1986, so, I have experienced the hard side of this subject. I agree with his conclusions. Buy the book and read it slowly and reflect.

Best treatment of evil I know of.

The first three chapters essentially take the top three "solutions" to evil and deconstruct them. He does a good job of explaining both the strengths and weaknesses of each. He is very generous in his critiques of each. But after each he is clear that all three are unable to fully explain the problem of evil.

The next two chapters deal with Scripture and evil and the ultimate destruction of evil. He pulls no punches and refuses to sugarcoat the issue.

I would highly recommend purchasing this - it is on a more academic level and thus some of the vocabulary and such will be more challenging to the average lay person but is worth the struggle to better grasp the topic.

Excellent historical analysis and treatment. I appreciated that Dr. Blocher would not go beyond the witness of the Holy Scriptures which is our "norming norm" while strongly asserting the Goodness of God, the Sovereignty of God and the evilness of evil. The best short treatment of the subject that I've read from an evangelical and theologically conservative perspective.

This book is a recommended resource for Bible college students and its information and teaching are valuable for any Christian wanting to deepen their understanding on the subject.

This reading is for a critical thinking. Its very analytical. I enjoy the parts that I understood.

This is a great summary of many of the theological attempts to explain the origin and existence of evil in God's good world. Blocher has definitely struggled with the issue, and I highly recommend this book as a good introduction to some of the issues and perspectives surrounding this important issue.

However, it seems that Henri ultimately fails to provide an explanation for the existence of evil. In his conclusion, he basically admits that the existence of evil is "inscrutable." That is, it's a mystery.

I think this is partly due to Blocher's insistence on believing in a God who commands every event, in it's entirety and minutest detail (p. 90). Yes, if that is true, then of course the existence of evil is inscrutable.

Thankfully, I think there are other possibilities to seriously consider when it comes to explaining the existence of evil in God's good creation.
