The “New” Problem of Evil

In Evil and the Justice of God, N. T. Wright names three issues that characterize what he calls “The New Problem of Evil.”

1. We ignore evil except when it hits us in the face.
2. We are surprised by evil when it does.
3. As a result, we react in immature and dangerous ways.

How do you see these three things playing out in our culture?

So, what are you thinking?
