46 | Theological and Pastoral Theodicy

Dr. Anna Robbins gives a renewed and practical take on theodicy, which attempts to answer the question of why a good and sovereign God permits evil in our world. As humans, we question suffering, but what answers can possibly satisfy us not solely in what’s to come through Jesus Christ, but also in what must be endured here and now? Anna leads us to consider this both theologically and pastorally, that we might find truth at the cross and abide in the divine presence of Jesus, as God with us, whose own suffering defines the trials of our lives. Anna serves as the president of Acadia Divinity College and the dean of theology at Acadia University in Nova Scotia.
