One of the theological conclusions that has come to be foundational to the interpretive work that I do in the Bible is the doctrine of divine determinism. I first reached this conclusion that the Bible assumes the doctrine of divine determinism around the time that I wrote my book The Most Real Being: A Biblical and Philosophical Defense of Divine Determinism. One of the things that my book, The Most Real Being, did not include was a thorough examination of how divine determinism fares against the so-called argument from evil. In more recent years, I have attempted to address that short-coming in my book by writing a paper entitled Biblical Divine Determinism and the Problem of Evil. In that paper, I attempt to give an adequately thorough defense of divine determinism in the face of the amount and nature of evil that exists in the world. After a few early drafts that have circulated, I have finally decided to call my most recent draft a final draft (albeit it is an initial version that I reserve the right to alter in subsequent versions). While the paper, like my book, will not be easy for every reader to follow, it tackles a very important issue that must be understood and settled by anyone who wants to understand the biblical message and its worldview.
