You should read Peter van Inwagen one the Problem of Evil.

In Quam Dilecta (here:, he says that when he was an atheist (which was for quite some time), he way swayed by the argument from evil.
And now, he challenges William Roew's incompatibility-premise, which states that theism is incompatible with ungracious evil. Rowe calls this "revolutionary" (or something like this), but van Inwagen's argument is persuasive.

Daniel Howard-Snyder comments on those arguments against incompatibility here:

He disagrees with Hasker for example (I disagree here, I think Hasker has a good obkection), but agrees with van Inwagen.

Definitely worth checking out.
