Guest: Dr. William Dembski

If God is good, why is there evil in the world? This one question has done more to undo belief in God among countless thousands of people – especially those who have seen the horrors this life can truly bring. Those who have lived through earthquakes; experienced the Asian tsunamis, survived Auschwitz and the Killing Fields; even to the recent murders at Fort Hood; Those who have buried a child; felt the sting of injustice – those who have, like all humans, encountered real evil in the world – wonder if God is there – if God is good – and if Christianity is true.

To address such questions head-on is a mathematician, a theologian, and a scientist – Dr. William Dembski. Internationally known as a paradigmatic figure in the world of science – particularly as he has advanced the theory of intelligent design regarding the creation of the world in contrast to Darwinian evolution – Dr. Dembski has authored a new book – The End of Christianity: Finding a Good God in an Evil World.
