A BOOK REVIEW OF THE PROBLEM OF EVIL BY JEREMY A. EVANS

The Problem of Evil: The Challenge to Essential Christian Beliefs. By Jeremy A. Evans. Nashville, TN: B&H Academic, 2013. 226 pp. $24.99. ISBN 978-7-4336-7180-7.
            The Problem of Evil has been said to be the only really good argument against the existence of God, as broadly construed by the major Theistic religions. The problem of evil, which began as what could be broadly construed as the logical problem of evil, in the writings of some ancient philosophers, has taken on a number of different forms, and been advanced by a number of different authors. In this book, Jeremy Evans seeks to interact with, and defeat, all of the known versions of the problem of evil. In this review we will consider the purpose of this book, its general outline, as well as considering some relative advantages and disadvantages of this book. 
            The General Editor of the B&H Series in Christian Apologetics, Robert B. Stewart, notes that the books in this series are written for Colleg…

L'argument de Paul en Romains 1:18-3:20

Comme vous allez voir, ceci n'est qu'un petit section d'un plus grand travail. J'enseigne, présentement, un cours sur l'épître aux Romains, à l'église Évangélique d'Aujourd'hui. J'ai toujours cru que l'épître de Paul est comme un grand argument, avec plusieurs sous-arguments. C'est très bien articulé, mais, c'est toujours un défi d'essayer de décortiquer l'argument d'un autre. Hier soir, en faisant un résumé de ce que Paul enseigne en Romains 1:18-23 j'ai tombé sur le clé qui m'a aider à trouver, finalement, après tant d'années de recherches, ce que je pense est l'argument de Romains 1:18-3:20. Je vous donne le deuxième point de ma résumé de ce que Paul enseigne en Romains 1:18-23, parce que c'est dans ce point que je décortique l'argument que Paul donne en Romains 1:18-3:20. (Je ne peux pas, dans cette publication, donner un discussion sur la question de ce que l'homme peut connaître de Dieu à tr…

Some thoughts on PHENOMENOLOGICAL INTERPRETATIONS OF ARISTOTLE by Martin Heidegger

A prelude to this ENORMOUS blog post is necessary. In what follows I attempt to explain what Martin Heidegger, one of the most interesting, and difficult to follow, thinkers of the 20th century, is doing in his lectures that can be found in the book "Phenomenological Interpretations of Aristotle: Initiation into Phenomenological Research". I will not, in this article, be providing any type of response (assuming some response must be given) to his thoughts. This article is part of the research for my doctoral dissertation, and, as such, I see no need to provide any substantial response at this point. I see what I perceive to be some important difficulties, however, in order to properly respond to the position of any thinker one must, first of all, understand them, and be able to explain their thought in one's own words, in such a way that that thinker would agree. The major difficulty that I have for this project, is that Heidegger is no longer with us. As such, I am publ…
