Does God Suffer?

From early times Christians have argued that since God cannot change he cannot be said to ‘suffer’ as a consequence of events which happen in the world. In the post-war years theological opinion has shifted, notably in the light of the work of the German theologian, Jűrgen Moltmann. In this talk we will examine both sides of the debate and relate it to the notion of God’s providence and care for creation contained in the bible.

Dr Brendan Devitt is originally from Ireland and studied Theology, Medieval Greek and Byzantine history at Dublin and Oxford universities and teaches Greek and Hebrew. He is married to Sheralee and finds ways to promote a deeper understanding of Scripture among Christians.
