In Reclaiming Theodicy , Michael Stoeber explores various themes of theodicy - theology that defends God in the face of evil - by creatively developing a distinction between transformative and destructive suffering. Emphasising the importance of human compassion and illustrating various spiritual experiences of God that are healing, the book proposes a narrative of life within which one might understand suffering in relation to a personal God of ultimate power and love, and suggests basic principles toward developing a politics of compassion.

'Michael Stoeber's new book is a quite beautiful and wise reflection on how to understand afflictive suffering in the presence of a compassionate God. He is an unusual thinker in that he can acknowledge the redemptive possibilities of suffering as well as the terrible reality that much suffering remains unredeemed. He calls for a continual spirituality of compassion as we experience our own suffering, encounter others' suffering, and participate more deeply in the redemptive goodness of God. The book is written in a very accessible style and should make this profound theodicy available to scholars and lay people alike.' - Professor Wendy Farley, Department of Religion, Emory University

'All in all, it is a beautiful and thought-provoking work, and if you're going to read any book on the problem of evil, I recommend this one.' - Seraphic Singles

'I would recommend Reclaiming Theodicy for Christian laypeople interested in engaging the problem of evil intellectually and socially...a welcome contribution.' - Mark S. M. Scott, Studies in Religion

MICHAEL STOEBER is Associate Professor of Spirituality at Regis College, Toronto School of Theology, University of Toronto, Canada.
