Human Freedom and the Logic of Evil: Prolegomenon to a Christian Theology of Evil

St. Martin's Press (1996)
  Copy   BIBTEX

Abstract

In this study, Worsley argues that it is rational to believe in a loving God in the face of evil. Beginning with a critique of Alvin Plantinga, he shows that human freedom is highly complex, and so depends upon complex structures in nature. These are both necessary for freedom but also sufficient for natural evil. He offers close analysis of the evolution of the human brain. The book develops a parallel argument that human evil stems from the evolution of personality.
