"Edgar gives wise counsel in sorting through major issues about evil. Using a biblically grounded worldview, he ably distinguishes evil as an intrusion into a world that God originally created good and shows the inadequacy of modern materialism. He gives hope on the basis of Christ's work of redemption. He also provides useful guidance about the death and suffering of animals and about science."
- Vern S. Poythress, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
