This book is devoted to establishing the criteria by which a theodicy may be judged both logically and ethically adequate, and to a comprehensive analysis of Whitehead's theodicy in terms of those criteria. Aside from his position on the inevitability of genuine evil, Whitehead provides a theodicy which is superior to many others and which shows immense promise for the future of philosophical theology and theological ethics. Contents: The Theoretical Dimension of Theodicy; The Practical Dimension of Theodicy; Towards an Ethical Theodicy; Alfred North Whitehead; Whitehead's Process Metaphysic; Whitehead on Evil; Whitehead on Omnibenevolence; Whitehead on Omnipotence; The Theodicy of Alfred North Whitehead.

Review:

Barineau set out to write a book on Whitehead's own theodicy that is both accurate and comprehensive. He has done just that.>>>> (Griffin, David Ray)

A strong, new voice has joined the theodicy debate recognizing its manifold aspects and finding in the complexity of Whitehead's thought rich resources for an adequate resolution.>>>> (John B. Cobb)

...this is the clearest discussion of Whitehead's theodicy to date....I recommend this book highly for those interested in either theodicy or Whiteheadian thought.>>>> (John B. Cobb Critical Review Of Books In Religion)

Barineau has provided an excellent account of Whitehead's theodicy that responsibly answers the array of criticisms that have been directed against it.>>>> (John B. Cobb)
