There are probably many of those. The Factbook page on Theodicy will suggest some from your library as well as some from the bookstore.

Personally, I would probably recommend 

Running Logos 9 latest (beta) version on Win 10

OOPS! did not look at all the hits, found it Why Does God Allow Evil? and it is a Logos book https://www.logos.com/product/145459/why-does-god-allow-evil-compelling-answers-for-lifes-toughest-questions 

Even better: I already own it Party!!! Thanks for the question. I really enjoyed Geisler's book, and used it for a class. Now I need to read Clay Jones.

Sorry about that! I forgot to follow the thread but yes that is the book and I'm glad you found it! Paul Copan has some stuff as well though. I read through these a while back but he takes a different approach than Jones.
