My article responding to the Virginia Tech tragedy is found at “On Faith,” sponsored by The Washington Post and Newsweek magazine.

An excerpt:

The unspeakable evil of the killings at Virginia Tech bring us once again face to face with the reality of human evil. Christianity faces this challenge honestly, and acknowledges the horror of moral evil and its consequences. The Bible never flinches from assigning responsibility for moral evil. Human beings are capable of committing horrible acts of violence, malevolence, cruelty, and killing.
