This article considers the fall of angels as a possible explanation for the problem of natural evil. First, it situates this explanation in relation to other contemporary responses to the problem of natural evil. Second, it charts out the historical development of this view, giving special attention to its articulation in the writings of several prominent 20th-century theologians and Christian thinkers. Finally, it raises several theological principles that commend this view for further evaluation.

The article draws attention to a neglected passage in the current recovery of biblical-theological sensitivity to the Bible: Jeremiah 33:14-26. Drawing out six intercanonical themes that cluster here as God promises at the conclusion to the Book of Consolation to restore his people, the article suggests that this text forms a unique whole-Bible intersection. The article begins with an introduction clarifying what is (and what is not) being argued before moving on to point out the neglect of Jeremiah 33 in biblical theology. The heart of the article reflects on the six intercanonical themes that emerge. Two objections are handled before the article draws to a close.

In: The Life and Thought of John Gill (1697-1771)
This volume of essays focuses on the thought of John Gill, the doyen of High Calvinism in the transatlantic Baptist community of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
Among the topics covered are Gill's trinitarian theology, his soteriological views, his Baptist ecclesiology, and his use of Scripture. Other papers are more focused, examining, for instance, his clash with the Arminian Methodist leader John Wesley over the issues of predestination and election, a clash that decisively shaped Wesley's perspective on Calvinism.
The tercentennial of Gill's birth in 1997 is a fitting occasion to issue this study of a man whose systematic theology and exposition of the Old and New Testaments formed the mainstay of many eighteenth-century Baptist ministers' libraries and who has never been the subject of a major critical study.
