BWJ 4. Jeremiah and Homer; a Surprising contrast

Tony takes us on an intriguing literary journey in this short talk. He compares Old Testament literature to Homer and Greek literature and explains how they offer contrasting views of reality. He then turns this contrast onto Jeremiah and explains how Jeremiah offers the climax and the resolution to much of Kings and the anger of God in the histories. In all of this he uses the great literary text Mimesis by Eric Auerbach, who famously compared Homer and the Old Testament.

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.
