Evil and the Devil

Full Product Description

The problem of evil has pursued world religions for centuries. The Old Testament contained no uniform dogma on evil powers, launching a fierce debate that has dominated theological and philosophical thought through the centuries to this day. Evil and the Devil brings together contributions from leading international scholars to chart that debate, tracing the history of evil from its origins in ancient rabbinic literature through the New Testament to the thought of Origen and one of the topic's most influential theologians, Augustine. What role did evil adopt in ancient Judaism? Why was Yahweh often equated with Satan in the Old Testament? What impact did the association of miracles with demons have upon Matthew's Gospel? Evil and the Devil examines such questions, resulting in a fascinating and comprehensive exploration of portrayals of evil and its power and influence on religious thought.

Evil and the Devil was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in May 2013. The ISBN for Evil and the Devil is 9780567371485.
