    1. This series of lectures provides a clear defense of the existence of God in the face of what van Inwagen considers the compound problem of Evil. He considers individually the "global problem" (that there is considerable evil in the world), the "local problem" (that specific evils happen in a way that seems unjustifiable), and the problem of animal suffering (in ways that cannot be traced back to human evil), and his treatment of this distinction is nice, clear and helpful in defining the problem [...]

    2. Wish I could have grasped most of these concepts. The lectures were great, but I could only go so far before losing the point. Considering the fact that I am just now starting to learn about this "problem of evil", it would have helped to start with something simpler. I'd recommend this book only to those who have an idea of the issue at hand. Not for first timers like myself!

    3. I don't know that I'm very philosophical, but this book was fun. I enjoyed the exercise and once we got past all the qualifications I enjoyed the argument. Abstract but accessible, I recommend this one.
