David Birnbaum's God and Evil is a major theological study which systematically confronts the philosophical problem of evil, and the Holocaust in particular. It presents an extensively researched and comprehensive review of the subject. In a clearly presented and readable exposition, Birnbaum then proposes a refreshing and powerful formulation. Combining modern and classic, rationalist and mystic themes, Birnbaum's proposed solution to the ancient problem of evil is perhaps the most elegant to appear in modern times. Though proceeding from a Jewish context, Birnbaum's compelling presentation and original synthesis will be of considerable value to adherents of all Western religions. God and Evil has been acclaimed by philosophers and theologians of all faiths. This philosophically exciting work has generated very considerable attention. It has been widely reviewed, has been selected as a Main Feature Selection of The Jewish Book Club, has already been assigned as a course text at major universities around the world, and has been critically acclaimed as "the best book in print on the subject." Also available now is new edition Summa Metaphysica Volume 1 God and Evil, Summa Metaphysica Volume 2 God and Good and two volume set of God and Evil & God and Good.
