Summary
"Evil is a problem that will not go away. For some, evil is a universal feature of the human condition. For others, it should name only the most horrible of crimes and injustices. Still others think that the problem lies with abuse of the term itself: using it to vilify a misunderstood enemy. No matter how we approach it, evil is a concept that continues to call out for critical reflection." "This volume collects the results of a two-and-a-half year deliberation on evil within the Boston University Institute for Philosophy of Religion lecture series, and it brings together the work of philosophers, theologians, religious studies scholars, and students of literature. Its essays provide an incisive, interdisciplinary consideration of the problem that is evil, along with ways we might be delivered from it."--BOOK JACKET
