THEO 0656 (3)
Examines philosophical, theological, biblical and pastoral perspectives on the problem of evil and suffering. The problems related to Christian theodicy will be introduced by classical readings in Scripture and theology, by key philosophical texts and by literary and artistic explorations of pain and evil. Evil and suffering represent the biggest obstacle to belief in Christian theism, not only in an intellectual sense, but also in terms of deep personal reaction as one faces the realities of evil and suffering in one's life and/or in the lives of others. Addresses the intellectual and personal aspects of evil and suffering in light of Christian theism.
