Two new books worth noting (and worth putting in your library):
First, William (Bill) Edgar’s booklet titled “How Did Evil Come into the World?” This is part of “new” series Christian Answers to Hard Questions. You can purchase this book for $4 here.

Second (by another WTS professor), is Vern Poythress’ book “Chance and the Sovereignty of God: A God-Centered Approach to Probability and Random Events”
What if all events—big and small, good and bad—are governed by more than just blind chance? What if they are governed by God?
In this theologically informed and philosophically nuanced introduction to the study of probability and chance, Vern Poythress argues that all events—including the seemingly random or accidental—fall under God’s watchful gaze as part of his eternal plan. Comprehensive in its scope, this book lays the theistic foundation for our scientific assumptions about the world while addressing personal questions about the meaning and significance of everyday events.
James Anderson says, “Is this the go-to book for a biblical theological perspective on chance, coincidence, randomness, risk, probability, prediction, and gambling? You bet it is! Dr. Poythress has hit another one out of the park. This book will transform the way you think about everything from quantum physics and weather forecasts to life insurance and card games.”
