+  What Does the Bible Say about Suffering? (2 segments)

  • Listen Now:
  • Description: People often treat Scripture like a manual, looking for a single clear response that explains the presence of evil and suffering. Brian Gregg thinks we should take a different approach. The Bible does not have one but many responses to suffering. To pick out one theme is to hear the sopranos but miss the choir. We need to listen to the whole Biblical narrative to appreciate its multifaceted handling of the problem. Brian joins us.

They believed that God had suddenly put into operation His plan for the rescue of the world. It was the day the Revolution began. NT Wright joins us.
