Here’s an incomplete reading list on the Problem of Evil. These were just the books I thought to grab on the way out the door this morning, so I will be updating it later. (I already know I forgot the book I’m working through right now The Doors of the Sea: Where was God in the Tsunami by Hart, a gift from Aunt Pat!) Anyway, here are some of the books that have informed my thinking on this subject.
