The existence of evil in the world represents one of the most complex problems for those who believe in God. Here, a range of Jewish and Christian contributors examine the issue of evil in the Bible and its impact on Judaism and Christianity from a variety of perspectives. For example, how has Jewish mysticism explained evil, and what were Luther's thoughts on the topic? The dialogue between specialists from different fields allows a broad overview of this problematic issue.

"This is a very technical work. Some knowledge of Hebrew, biblical themes, and systematic theology is presumed." -The Bible Today, "April/May 2006 Review International Review of Biblical Studies, vol 51, 2004/05
