Product Description

Does God suffer? Is he imperfect if he does? What about human suffering? Does God relate to it, or is he distant? This is perhaps the most important theological topic confronting the church and her theologians today. This book, Divine Impassibility and the Mystery of Human Suffering is a collection of essays by an ecumenical selection of theologians that addresses varying aspects of divine and human suffering.

Contributors include Bruce L. McCormack, James F. Keating, Thomas Joseph White, and Gary Culpepper.

Topics include the problem of language in talking about "immutability", analogical studies into the paradox of the suffering human Christ who remains impassible, and studies on the Christologies of Thomas Aquinas and Karl Barth.
