Obanla, Michael, "The Problem of Evil, Modern Calvinism and the Doctrine of Free Will: Is John Feinberg's Theodicy a Coherent Resolution to the Problem of Tragic Moral Evil?" (2012). Masters Theses. 247.
The thesis examines and evaluates Feinberg's theistic defense against the problem of evil with a view to determining whether it represents a coherent and consistent resolution to the problem of tragic moral evil. The thesis relies on three criteria for the evaluation: the internal consistency of Feinberg's theistic defense, its exegetical accuracy, and epistemic adequacy.
