In a world where secular thinkers are increasingly recognizing the reality of evil, the challenge remains: What is the appropriate response to evil? In Evil and the Justice of God (InterVarsity), N.T. Wright argues that Jesus’ death is the culmination of God’s solution to the problem of evil. The book includes a DVD with Wright discussing the topic.
Why does evil persist in a world created by a good God? And why does the church seem so feeble in counteracting evil? N.T. Wright, a New Testament scholar who is Anglican bishop of Durham, U.K., and author of several well-received volumes, including Jesus and the Victory of God, addresses these questions in a readable and compelling plea to renew the church’s compassionate mission in these challenging times.
Wright is one of the most influential thinkers in today’s church, and his book Evil and the Justice of God (InterVarsity) helps us better understand why evil exists and points us to a day when it will be ultimately defeated. Wright’s discussion of the power of the cross makes this excellent reading for pastors as we move toward Easter.
Wright’s biblical exegesis is brilliant enough to revive many a flagging spirit, and the advice on how to use faith in God’s promises to deal with evil in the real world is even more restorative.
