How can a good and powerful God allow suffering? The Problem of Theodicy with Rabbi David Thomas

We have been taught to believe that God is all-powerful. We want to believe that God is good. Yet we know that suffering is real. From the biblical period to the Holocaust and into modern times we continue to struggle with this paradox. In this series of five sessions we will consider the classic arguments and subject them to scrutiny. Before we conclude, we hope to come to some possible resolutions of the matter – perhaps in an unexpected way.
