Lecture on the Problem of Evil with Gerry Breshears

In our sixth lecture in the Year of Biblical Literacy Lecture Series, author, professor, and scholar Gerry Breshears lectured on three commonly held views of God’s providence as it relates to the presence of evil in the world. He then conducted an extended Q&A while consistently displaying relevant Bible passages on the screen.

Given the very visual nature of this lecture and Q&A, we highly recommend watching the video version (button below). You may also find it helpful to view Dr. Breshears’ slides or the PDF handout of his lecture content.

Dr. Breshears has been a professor of theology at Western Seminary for over thirty years and has authored or co-authored numerous books and articles. He serves on the board for The Bible Project and is also one of Pastor Dave Lomas’ close mentors.
