C. S. Lewis’s The Problem of Pain
with Dr. Christopher Wright

C.S. Lewis wrote The Problem of Pain in 1940. It was his first major Christian work. In the book he seeks to reconcile God’s power and goodness with the presence of evil. Lewis delves into many areas of Christian thought—apologetics, God’s goodness, the Fall of humanity, heaven. God can use evil and pain to mold us and make us into who we each were made to be.

Presenter: Dr Christopher Wright has been a photographer/artist for over three decades and is a scholar of the history of photography as well as of the history of religion with emphases on the historical Jesus and on Mesoamerican mythology.
