God Can’t: A Theology for Survivors, Activists, and Everybody Else
March 29 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm PDT
Thomas Jay Oord comes to Claremont to discuss the ideas in his new book, God Can’t:
Hurting people ask heart-felt questions about God and suffering. Some “answers” they receive appeal to mystery: “God’s ways are not our ways.” Some answers say God allows evil for a greater purpose. Some say evil is God’s punishment. The usual answers fail. They don’t support the truth God loves everyone all the time. God Can’t gives a believable answer to why a good and powerful God doesn’t prevent evil.
