Temporal Wholes and the Problem of Evil

Religious Studies 29 (3):313 - 324 (1993)
Abstract
I borrow an idea from the fiction of C. S. Lewis that future outcomes may affect the value of past events, defend this idea via the concept of a 'temporal whole' and show its promise as a part of a theodicy and its resonance with Christian theism.
