This chapter discusses the character of a theistic answer to the problem of evil. The discussion focuses on two of this problem's features. The first feature of this problem is that it presents the most pressing and persuasive objection to belief in the existence of God. The second feature is that it illustrates the claim that reflection on science is encouraging to particular and traditional modes of its defence instead of being destructive.

Keywords: theistic answer; problem of evil; theism; existence of God; reflection on science
