Offering an alternative to classic Christian theodicies (justification of God's goodness and omnipotence in view of the existence of evil), Wendy Farley interprets the problem of evil and suffering within a tragic context, advocating compassion to describe the power of God in the struggle against evil.

Wendy Farley is Professor of Religion and Ethics in the Department of Religion at Emory University. She is the author of Gathering Those Driven Away: A Theology of Incarnation, Tragic Vision and Divine Compassion: A Contemporary Theodicy, and The Wounding and Healing of Desire: Weaving Heaven and Earth, all published by Westminster John Knox Press.
