God Can’t: A Theology for Survivors, Activists, and Everybody Else

March 29 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm PDT
Butler 201, Claremont School of Theology

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.

CPS Student Seminar: Bradford McCall

April 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT
Haddon, Claremont School of Theology, 1325 North College Avenue
Claremont, CA 91711 United States
+ Google Map

"Necessary, Kenotically-donated, & Self-giving Love"   Bradford McCall argues for a notion of love that is necessarily kenotically-donated, self-giving, creative, and uncontrolling. In so doing, he uses several of Thomas Jay Oord’s texts as a launching point, and will aim at substantiating that this necessary, kenotically-donated, self-giving, creative, and uncontrolling love is fundamentally an empowerment of the other and allows for the interactivity of matter and the godhead, since it is principally pneumatologically derived by an imbibification of primal, undifferentiated…
