Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. Raging with Compassion: Pastoral Responses to the Problem of Evil

Can we defend God's love, goodness, and power in a world scarred by violence and suffering? Do we need to? Traditional attempts to explain the problem of evil have mostly seen it as a philosophical and theological task. In this book John Swinton reminds readers that the experience of evil and suffering precedes pontification on its origin. Raging with Compassion seeks to inspire fresh Christian responses and modes of practice in our broken, fallen world.

John Swinton holds the chair in practical theology and pastoral care and is director of the centre for Spirituality, Health and Disability at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland. His other books include Spirituality and Mental Health Care, Resurrecting the Person, and From Bedlam to Shalom.
