In 2018, Bloomsbury Academic will release the 2nd edition of Evil: A Guide for the Perplexed by Chad V. Meister. Meister is Professor of Philosophy and Theology at Bethel College, Indiana, USA. He is the author or editor of 20 books, many of them on evil, including The Cambridge Companion to the Problem of Evil (co-edited with Paul Moser), God and the Problem of Evil: Five Views (co-edited with James Dew), and the six-volume The History of Evil (co-edited with Charles Taliaferro).
From the publisher’s description of Evil:
Evil: A Guide for the Perplexed is a lively examination of the philosophical and theological problems raised by the existence of widespread evil. It explores classic debates around this problem and also engages with more recent ones, from new challenges posed by scientific advances in evolutionary theory, neuroscience, and cosmology, to concerns of climate change and environmental degradation, to questions raised by increasing religious and secular violence. This second edition is fully revised and updated and contains three new chapters covering topics such as Jewish, Christian, and Islamic responses to evil and skeptical theism. The result is an even-handed guide to both traditional and contemporary issues raised by the reality and ubiquity of evil.
