I am super excited to share this conversation with my dear friend and brilliant scholar Tom Oord. In this episode we discuss a couple different topics from an Open and Relational perspective in the hope it lures you to join our Open and Relational Theology reading group!! That’s right. Tom and I are gonna facilitate an exploration of ORT and we would love for you to join the fun.
Did you know Tom just released a new book? It’s called “God Can’t: How to Believe in God and Love after Tragedy, Abuse, and Other Evils.” It is the single best introduction to the open and relational perspective on evil for the non-specialist. I have already recommended it to a bunch of people, so if you are asking questions about God’s power, presence, and relationship to suffering – read this book.
