Unbelievable?

2 views on the God of Love and the Problem of Evil - Thomas Jay Oord and John C Peckham (+ Greg Koukl)

February 14, 2020

If God is all-powerful and all-loving, why is there so much evil in the world? Two Christian thinkers with different solutions to this age-old question join Justin.

Thomas Jay Oord is a theologian and philosopher who advocates a ‘non-coercive and uncontrolling’ view of God’s love and sovereignty. John C Peckham is a theologian whose latest book ‘Theodicy of Love’ suggests that God’s love is part of a cosmic drama of free spiritual and human agents that make sense of why evil exists.

At the end of the show Justin interviews Greg Koukl about the 10th anniversary edition of ‘Tactics: A game plan for discussing your Christian convictions’.
