Why does God allow evil to exist? (English)
The amount of evil that we can see in our world might make the thought of a kind and caring God as its creator paradoxical. This is what is generally called the problem of evil and the topic of this study. This is a litterary study which is based on qualitative analysis and hermeneutics as our method. We have chosen to research this problem with the emphasis on two different theodices. One of these theodices is written by John Hick and the other by C.S Lewis. We have researched both the theodices, and the background to the problem itself. In this study we have expanded on important concepts regarding the problem of evil and we will show you two different explanations as to why God and evil coexists. We have reviewed both theodices and analysed them. We have reviewed similarities and differences as we tried to reach the core of each theodicy. Both theodices have been evaluated according to a model for what constitutes a successful theodicy and from that we have drawn the conclusion that both of these theodices are credible, despite our original thoughts.
