Dancing in the Dark: Reflections on the Problem of Theodicy

Synopsis

"The structure of the book comprises a series of disciplinary perspectives that initially question the nature of religious language, which, in current discourse, often has an elusive, euphemistic quality. The subsequent discussion looks at the highly uncertain nature of the Special Creation hypothesis in light of the history of disease and mass extinctions, and the general vulnerability of the planet. Moral issues are also extensively considered, with a particular emphasis on war and aggression, and persecution and exploitation, especially in relation to both ideology and expediency."
