Perspectives on Evil and Suffering: Wright, Bauckham, Ward

Great to find this collection of vids posted by St. Johns Nottingham, Tom Wright on the Resurrection, Richard Bauckham on how the NT was put together. It's a good day for online video resources (see previous post).

For a taster, here's the first of a two parter on evil and suffering, recently posted, featuring Keith Ward, Tom Wright and Richard Bauckham.

some of the blurb from the college:

As well as a number of the Extension Studies DVDs being showcased, featuring;
Tom Wright, Richard Burridge, James Dunn, Graham Stanton and Stephen Travis,
we also have extracts from a number of videos that will be used in our multimedia Interactive Timeline project. They feature Richard Bauckham, Karen Kilby, Anthony Thiselton, Larry Hurtado, Tim Hull and Ben Fulford, introducing Jurgen Moltmann Von Balthasar, Karl Rahner, Paul Ricoeur , Wolfhart Pannenberg and Han Frei.

We are at this moment trying out a provisional web version of our timeline, that focuses on 20th and 21st century theology and modern thought, where you can see how some of the above videos are going to be used. This link will follow in due course.

Also soon to follow, we hope there will be extracts of videos, featuring Keith Ward discussing the problem of evil, William Lane Craig discussing Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion and many more.

excellent. Watch this space.

  1. Gosh, I seem to have tapped into some kind of suggestive thread on the Internet. I have a blog of my own, and this is not a plug for readers. But I have posted a talk on my blog by Peter Kreeft which is about evil. He makes comparisons with the Lord of the Rings and 10 uncommon insights into evil. He also mentions the book The Brothers Karamazov, which prompted me to search it out on the Project Gutenberg website. I found an excellent ebook reader called Ybook, which is perfect in every sense and it is free; please do try it out (link at the bottom). I am now reading The Brothers Karamazov.

    I have been a subscriber to the St. Johns Youtube group for some time, but missed this one you have here. Many thanks.

    I hope you do not mind but i am going to post it up on my own blog in the same post as the talk by Peter Kreeft. I love this man's knowledge and delivery. I especially like one of the comments at the end by one of the students about why Christ said to the disciples that it would be better for him to go away from them. He made comparisons to Job's argument with God, and how God's answer to Job did not really address all of Job's concerns yet Job seemed completely satisfied with God's reply. God answered Job with a question, "where were you when I....". The basic point being that there are far too many questions for which the answers are not discernible by our mortal minds, and this is why it was better that 'He went away from them'.

    Nice one cheers!
