The Idea of God and the Reality of Evil
by R.W.K. Paterson

The Idea of God and the Reality of Evil is the perfect book for readers who have a broad interest in fundamental religious issues. It offers a balanced, clear and non-technical view of the religious ‘problem of evil’, which often forms an insurmountable barrier to faith.

For Atheists the existence of evil is categoric proof that a higher omnipresent and omnipotent creator cannot exist. This book takes a fresh look at the arguments of the Atheists and re-examines their perspective that a perfect being implies a perfect world, and offers a rational answer to the apparent conflict between faith and an imperfect reality.

Paterson’s treatment of the problem of evil is clear. He offers readers a balanced look at all the conflicting views in this book which will appeal to Christians, Humanists and members of many other faiths.
