The audio from my seminar, "God and Human Suffering," is available on line.

Dr. Groothuis, thank you for posting this. As I've been wresting through theodicy in new ways recently, your reminder to take my place on the mourner's bench brings a much needed balance; and, perhaps, a much needed aspect of my apologetic response to those who have been raising these most difficult sort of questions lately. It's surprisingly easy to dissociate from the painful realities when intellectually explaining their contrast to the "glory about to be revealed to us."

Dr. Groothuis,

I'm glad that you have given a sober perspective on biblical lamentations.
Honestly,I'm tired of people (Christians and unbelievers alike)who 'extol' the virtues of positive thinking.
It's as if sadness has no place in the human heart. Then why did Jesus say,"Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted (By who?)"
