God on trial

‘God on Trial’ will air this Sunday on PBS (I think at 8pm, listed under ‘Masterpiece Collections’ in tv guides) – it sounds like a provocative and interesting exploration of the problem of evil (set in Auschwitz, a handful of prisoners put God on trial).  First Things gives it a great review here.  Judging from the First Things review, it seems the show explores the problem/mystery of suffering in the right way in at least one sense – no one (atheist or believer) should feel comfortable after watching it.

About Kleiner

Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
