A Frightening Love radically rethinks God and evil. It rejects theodicy and its impersonal conception of reason and morality. Faith survives evil through a miraculous love that resists philosophical rationalization. Authors criticized include Alvin Plantinga, Richard Swinburne, Marilyn McCord Adams, Peter van Inwagen, John Haldane, and William Hasker.
ANDREW GLEESON is Lecturer in Philosophy at the Flinders University of South Australia. He has previously taught philosophy at the Australian Catholic University and the University of Adelaide. He has published articles in the philosophy of mind, ethics, and the philosophy of religion.
