Dicey Theodicy

The Problem of Evil and the Problem of God
by D. Z. Phillips

Fortress Press, 2005
(280 pages, $20.00, paperback)

This ambitious, often insightful book by D. Z. Phillips, incumbent of the Danforth Chair in Philosophy of Religion at Claremont Graduate University in California, means to reshape the current debate about evil among major philosophers of the Anglo-American tradition (also known as “Analytic Philosophy”), to which, for decades, Phillips has been a major contributor.
