Is God to Blame?  

with Dr. Greg Boyd
Thursday, June 22, 2017 2:00-3:30 EDT

Dr. Greg Boyd

Dr. Greg Boyd

Drawing on his acclaimed book, Is God to Blame? : Moving Beyond Pat Answers to the Problem of Suffering, author Greg Boyd confronts the questions we ask when we face real suffering in our lives. Addressing ordinary Christians, he wrestles with the unsatisfactory answers that theologians and pastors tend to offer and finds that a fully Christian approach must keep Jesus Christ at the center of what we say about human suffering and God’s place in it. What comes through is a hopeful picture of a sovereign God who is relentlessly opposed to evil, who knows our sufferings, and who can be trusted to bring us through them.

Greg Boyd is senior pastor of Woodland Hills Church in St. Paul, Minn., and president of ReKnew. He has authored or coauthored 21 books, including the best-selling Letters from a Skeptic (David C. Cook, 1994). His most recent books are Benefit of the Doubt: Breaking the Idol of Certainty (Baker Books, 2013) and Crucifixion of the Warrior God (Fortress Press, 2016). Greg received his PhD from Princeton Theological Seminary and his MDiv from Yale Divinity School.
