Ep 41: The Problem of Evil (Part 1)- Intro & Job

This is Part 1 of an extended series exploring the problem of evil.

Few things call into question our beliefs about God & challenge our sense meaning & purpose like experiences of evil, suffering, and injustice.
In this episode we'll introduce the historic challenges to Christian understandings of God that the problem of evil presents. and then we'll dive into a detailed examination of the book of Job in the Old Testament.

What insights does Job give us as we wrestle with the problem of evil? What are some of the common misconceptions and wrong answers people mistakenly pull out of this story? What is and isn't going on in this book?
