Big Ideas in Little Pictures - Introduction

Welcome to our first talk in the series ‘Big Ideas in Little Pictures’ where Tony unpacks the ‘big idea’ with a picture or schematic. This first talk introduces the framework for the following talks, and makes the case that we can use our human experience of creative thinking to understand – or begin to understand – the mystery of God’s act of creation ex nihilo. Hopefully they will open up a new vista for us of God and reality – the kind of vista that Gregory (among others) conceived. It is a vista that will move us beyond the time-bound, problem and solution thinking that lies behind lots of modern evangelical theology.

Does God cause suffering?

This is the first talk from David Bentley Hart during his visit to Australia. He addresses the vexed topic of suffering based on his book ‘The Doors of the Sea’. This talk is followed by a long series of questions which take the topic – and David’s views – deeper and more personal.
