Just released today:

Explaining Evil: Four Views edited by W. Paul Franks

Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic


Richard Brian Davis - Non-Calvinist, basically gives a "free will" defense.

Paul Helm - Calvinist, gives a greater good defense (a world with the incarnation and redemption is better than one without) and defends compatibilism in regard to free will.

Michael Ruse - Atheist, moral skeptic. Argues that our moral beliefs are a product of evolution and what best suits our survival.

Erik Wielenberg - Atheist, moral realist. Argues for platonic-like account of morality.

This will be an important contribution in the debate and all the authors are really some of the best representatives they could have found (though I would have liked to have seen Greg Welty defending the Calvinist section).
