The Book of Job:
Why Do Bad Pandemics Happen to Good People?
Sunday Mornings starting September 13th
9:00 a.m – 9:30 a.m.
It’s perhaps the oldest and still the most troubling issue in Human Spiritual Life: the suffering of the innocent. This Rector’s Forum will study the Book of Job as our “entry” into spiritual “Theodicy,” or the quest for answers to that age-old question, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” Along the way, we will seek insights from such authors as C. S. Lewis, Max Lucado, N.T. Wright, Dan Edwards, Rabbi Harold Kushner, and The Rev. Dr. Burton Cooper.
“… for those who long ago (or short ago) had their faith-driven out by their sensitivity to the world’s suffering, or by the pain of their own suffering, but who nonetheless remain haunted by the sense of divine reality in and behind things.” Burton Cooper, Why, God?
