Book One. The problem of evil -- What is sin? -- Temporal law and eternal law -- A mind is the slave of passion through its own choice -- Just punishment -- Sin is the neglect of eternal things -- Book Two. Why has man been given free choice? -- The evidence of God's existence -- In truth we find God -- Every perfection comes from God -- Free will is good -- The cause of sin is not positive but negative -- Book Three. The cause of sin lies in the will -- God's foreknowledge -- To foresee sin is not to cause it -- Why does God not prevent unhappiness? -- Happiness and unhappiness in the end are both just -- Perverted will is the cause of evil, and it is useless to look further -- It is our future destiny which is important -- The sufferings of young children -- The sufferings of animals -- The first man's sin -- The Devil's sin -- The supreme value of justice, truth, and wisdom
