Destruction, death of innocents, warfare…all themes that you will find in the pages of the Old Testament. The Bible is not free of pain, suffering, and evil, sometimes making it difficult to read. Why did God allow these things? Was it his will that these things happen? If you are asking these questions, good. Dr. Andrew Swafford joins Jeff Cavins to answer these questions and lead us to a better understanding of why bad things happen in Sacred Scripture.
Dr. Andrew Swafford is a Professor of Theology at Benedictine College in Atchinson, KS. He is also a national speaker on a variety of topics as well as co-author of a number of books, including The Catholic Guide to the Old Testament, Gift and Grit: How Heroic Virtue Can Change Your Life and Relationships, and What We Believe: The Beauty of the Catholic Faith.
