Given that we meet evils in every quarter of the world, could it be governed by an all-good and all-powerful deity? Whilst some philosophers argue that the problem of evil is strong evidence for atheism, others claim that all of the evils in our world can be explained as requirements for deeper goods. On the other hand, skeptical theists believe in God, but struggle with the task of explaining the role of evils in our world. Skeptical theism tackles the problem of evil by proposing a limited skepticism about the purposes of God, and our abilities to determine whether any given instance is truly an example of gratuitous evil. This collection, of 22 original essays, presents cutting-edge work on skeptical theistic responses to the problem of evil and the persistent objections that such responses invite. Divided into four sections, the volume discusses the epistemology of sceptical theism, conditions of reasonable epistemic access, the implications for theism, and the implications for morality.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Trent Dougherty and Justin McBrayer's Skeptical Theism: New Essays is a collection of twenty-two essays by leading lights in religious epistemology. The essays are well-argued and briskly presented, and Dougherty and McBrayer's preface and analytic table of contents for the essays are helpful and clear. The most impressive feature of this collection is how consistently the editors have encouraged the contributors to critically interact. ... this collection has four well organized exchanges in addition to stand-alone articles. * Scott Aikin, International Journal for the Study of Skepticism *
