Dr. William Edgar discusses the question, How Did Evil Come Into the World?, which is also the title of his recent addition to the Christian Answers to Hard Questions series. Today’s conversation covers the same territory as the booklet, how a good God can be the creator and sovereign of a world now filled with evil, and how scientific developments related to Darwinism and evolution challenge or harmonize with the Biblical account of suffering and sin. Dr. Edgar guides listeners and readers to a view of God and evil that recognizes both the terrible reality of evil and the supreme reality of God’s good plan.
Dr. Edgar is Professor of Apologetics and John Boyer Chair of Evangelism and Culture at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelpia, PA. Dr. Edgar serves as part of the Christian Renaissance Foundation, the European Leadership Forum, and the Huguenot Fellowship, among other responsibilities.
