Publishers Description
All human beings--indeed, all creatures--experience evil in various forms. How can the hurtful and harmful aspects of life be understood and faced? What differing perspectives on evil can be gained from - Behavioral science and psychology - Biblical faith and the history of Christian thought - Contemporary thinkers - Religious traditions of the East In a constructive conclusion, Schwarz assesses the pervasiveness of evil, human freedom in the face of evil, the personification of evil, and the hope for the end of evil. This book provides the basis of hope for a just and humane life. It is a book for our time. Evil is neither a primeval decree nor an inescapable fate but has its origin in a power that always denies or negates. While we are all caught in the dragnet of evil, we are not helpless victims, as if evil were simply an imperious it. We can fight evil and indeed should do so. --from the Preface Evil is a] comprehensive treatment of a complex and currently interesting subject. The historical and theological treatment will be as competent as everyone who has read a Schwarz book before will expect. In] the final chapter Schwarz concludes that]: evil exists as opposition to God in our natural world; humans participate freely in evil and morally transgress; a price is paid for choosing wrongly; evil will not necessarily continue in order to highlight the good by contrast; the liberated Christian bears good fruit amidst this evil; and God has set boundaries for evil that it cannot overstep. -- Pastor Ronald E. C. Grissom, St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, Ohio Hans Schwarz provides a kind of textbook history of the ways thinkers in our time have tried to account for evil. . . .The book is succinct, fair to its subjects, and helpful to those who want introductions to these hypotheses. -- The Christian Century Hans Schwarz is Professor of Systematic Theology and Contemporary Theology at the University of Regensburg, Germany. He is the author or editor of more than two dozen books.

The Structures of Evil  Apr 2, 2006
It's a commonplace to observe that we live in a world that contains a great deal of evil. Even people who don't think much about philosophical and theological matters probably reflect occasionally on why so much evil (and suffering) exists in the world. Some years ago liberal Rabbi Harold Kushner wrote a book entitled WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE which was quite popular.

In EVIL: A HISTORICAL AND THEOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE Lutheran theologian Hans Schwarz surveys the topic of evil from the perspective of the Bible, history, theology and anthropology.

Schwarz starts with psychologists such as Konrad Lorenz, Erich Fromm and Carl Jung. These are thinkers that I've always wanted to read but haven't found the time. He then moves to theological answers to the question of evil. He provides a synopsis of the biblical view and answers given by men such as Augustine, Martin Luther and Karl Barth. He reviews liberation theology, process theology, and feminist theology among other movements.

While you can't blame an author omitting material that you might have wanted included, I found the book was a little too focused on German writers. The only contemporary philosopher Schwarz summarizes in any detail is Kant.

Two other books by Schwarz, ON THE WAY TO THE FUTURE and ESCHATOLOGY, contain valuable discussions of evil from a somewhat different perspective.
