Sra Menssen Thomas D. Sullivan Evil, Inquirer Suffering wickedness pervade world. How could an omnipotent, omniscient, wholly good God have created such a world? This question poses what philosophers ologians call " problem of evil." Perhaps this is something of a misnomer. After all, re is more than one problem of evil. What are psychological roots of wickedness apathy? How does one fight one's own recalcitrant will? What is best way to alleviate abuse poverty? All se are certainly problems of evil, but y are different from problem oreticians have chosen to call problem of evil--or better-- philosophical problem of evil. philosophical problem of evil challenges ists to reconcile existence of evil with existence of God. philosophical problem of evil has blocked more inquiries into ism than all or philosophical problems combined. Countless thinkers inquiring into rationality of religious belief have foundered on existence of evil, have concluded a good God does not exist. it is not merely s aists who Logos 2:1 Winter 1999 Logos are troubled by philosophical problem of evil. Believers, too, are perplexed, sometimes so deeply troubled by problem that faith dissolves into doubt, doubt into disbelief. problem of evil has exercised so many
