What about Evil? A Defense of God's Sovereign Glory

Author: Scott Christensen

Reconciling the existence of God and evil has been a long-standing conundrum in Christian theology, yet a philosophical approach--rather than a theological one--dominates the discussion. Turning to the Bible's grand storyline, Scott Christensen examines how sin, evil, corruption, and death fit into the broad outlines of redemptive history. He argues that God's ultimate end in creation is to magnify his glory to his image-bearers, most notably by defeating evil through the atoning work of Christ.
