  • Spaces of Spirituality

    1st Edition

    Edited by Nadia Bartolini, Sara MacKian, Steve Pile

  • Porphyry in Fragments

    Reception of an Anti-Christian Text in Late Antiquity, 1st Edition

  • Theodicy Beyond the Death of 'God'

    The Persisting Problem of Evil, 1st Edition

    By Andrew Shanks

    True theodicy is partly a theoretical corrective to evangelistic impatience: discounting the distortions arising from over-eager salesmanship.
