The Apologetic of Evil

EvilInsideRumors of another World by Philip Yancey offers an excellent Romans 1 type apologetic – perceiving there must be a God by that which we experience in this world.  It would be a great read for atheists for agnostics on the fence – it is intellectual without being scholarly, and it is sure to hit an emotional note.

What I found most insightful is that Yancey finds more evidence for a world beyond ours on account of evil than he does on account of goodness.  The fact that we all get the impression that things have gone wrong tells us there must be something better we started with, and possibly something better we could head towards.
