Big Ideas in Little Pictures - Wholes before Parts

This is Tony’s second talk on ‘Big Ideas in Small pictures’.  In this talk, he focuses on ‘synthesis’ – humanity’s mysterious ability to create wholes from parts. He argues that our experience of ‘synthesis’ shines a light on what Gregory says about the mind of God in creating ex nihilo; that God created all humanity in one ‘man’.  In this talk Tony uses an example from one of his past business projects to illustrate both the mystery and the power of synthesis. As in the first talk, Tony is exploring how we are made in the image of God, and how our experience of mind illuminates what at face value seems beyond us – the eternal perspective of God.

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.
