Klaus von Stosch

Klaus von Stosch observes that many Christian theologians today defend some sort of free will theism or open theism. For Armin Kreiner, William Hasker, and others, the answer to the problem of evil is a free will defence, often combined with a natural law defence. They view revelation as personal communication between God and humankind, and God’s purpose with humankind as to establish and to deepen a relationship of mutual love. This essay gives an outline of Hasker’s account of the problem of evil and shows how Christians can learn from the ideas of the Muslim theologian Navid Kermani. Kermani’s notion of revelation is structured aesthetically, and he draws on the terror as well as the love and beauty of God.

Keywords:   aesthetics, free will, William Hasker, Navid Kermani, problem of evil, theodicy
