The origin of evil has been the deepest problem of life. It confronts every human being in one form or other.
If there is one question which has eluded all investigations of the keenest intellects of all lands and all times; if there is one problem which has called forth volumes of writings from the profoundest of thinkers; if there is one riddle that has baffled all attempts of the sages at solving it; if there is one problem on which the last word yet remains to be said, despite the world's voluminous literature of some ten and twenty centuries--it is the problem of the existence of evil.
Inspired by recent books disparaging religion, many of which use exemplary human foibles to make their case and show a common disregard for historical background, The God Knot corrects their failings and instead provides a surprisingly simple answer to the ages-old theodicy question: How is God compatible with evil?
