The auther, Fr Martin d’Arcy, was a famous apologist for the Catholic Faith and an eminent philosopher. He was also responsible for a number of high-profile conversions including the writer Evelyn Waugh. In this classic text he turns his vast intellect to the age-old problem of why God permits innocent suffering. His answers are tightly argued, and he concludes that evil ‘casts no shadow on God but rather – where sin abounded, there most of all did Love abound.’
