This lecture looks at the single most vexing question in the whole matter of religion: Does it make sense to believe in an all-good, all-powerful deity in the face of the world's terrifying suffering and violence? Stackhouse will draw on comparative religious study, philosophy, science and theology to offer a carefully modulated response that people from a wide range of outlooks have found helpful as they deal with the absurdities and agonies of life as we know it.
John Stackhouse is Sangwoo Youtong Chee Professor of Theology and Culture at Regent College. He has published more than 500 articles, book chapters, and reviews in the history, sociology, and philosophy of religion, in ethics, and in theology. He has authored seven books and co-authored, edited, or co-edited seven more, including his recent book, Can God Be Trusted? Faith and the Challenge of Evil.
