God, Death, Suffering and the Loss of Faith

September 4, 2014 With Bart Ehrman

Bart Ehrman, former fundamentalist pastor who became an agnostic student of the origins and evolution of Christianity, joins us, in 2008, in a discussion of the most pressing issue in modern, post-holocaust theology:  How can a just God countenance the suffering and early death of the innocent?  Of the many scholars of religion we have talked with he is, simply, the most illuminating and moving on this central dilemma of “theodicy.”
