Evil and the Justice of God

N. T. Wright's new book (seems to publish one every quarter!), Evil and the Justice of God is a good introduction to the "new" problem of evil in the 21st century. While it is not a highly technical discussion of the nature of evil, Wright cuts to the chase by considering the role of the cross in solving the problems of evil. The first chapter lays out contemporary events and historical solutions to the problem of evil in an engaging way (I read the first 45 pgs in about 30 minutes). Wright reveals the problems of postmodernism (evil exists, no one is responsible) and modernism (man can over come evil) and sets the course for a supernatural solution to the supernatural evils of our world. If you pick it up, let me know what you think.
