N. T. Wright: Evil and the Justice of God

In conclusion, Wright admittedly says that Evil and the Justice of God does not provide a full or balanced treatment of the problem of evil (10), which he considers an impossible philosophical issue (11) that will not be solved in this world. Rather, the problem of evil is an opportunity to proclaim the message of God’s future world without evil, as a result of the atoning work of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, postmodern society in general, and Christians in particular, should live lives exemplified by forgiveness.

Compared to other books dealing with the problem of evil, Wright’s Evil and the Justice of God presents a very practical and thought-provoking composition that addresses the challenges and inherent connection between evil and the justice of God within both a postmodern Western context and a Judeo-Christian context. Wright’s frequent and insightful summations in each chapter make this book not only easy to read, but compelling for anyone interested in its subject.
