Is God Good?

Why a loving God allows evil and suffering is one
of the most pressing questions of our time.
The classic statement of the problem follows: Either
God is all-powerful but not all-good, and therefore
doesn't stop evil; or God is all-good but unable to stop
evil, in which case He is not all-powerful.

Many Christians believe that God is completely good,
just, and loving. Such a God, however, stands in stark
contrast to a world in which war, crime, corruption,
oppression, starvation, and abuse are rampant.

The Claremont McKenna College Christian Fellowship cordially invites you to come and hear two of
CMC's own distinguished professors, Stephen T. Davis
and John K. Roth, discuss a question that has been hotly
debated throughout history.

The evening's program will be highly unstructured.
There will an open forum/question-and-answer session
in which audience participation is highly encouraged.

Professor Davis received his Master of Divinity from
Princeton Theological Seminary and his Ph.D. from
the Claremont Graduate School before joining the CMC
faculty in 1970. Professor Davis, although more commonly recognized as the Stags soccer coach, is also
currently a pastor at United Presbyterian Church.

Professor Roth received both his M.A. and his Ph.D.
from Yale University and has been a member of the
CMC faculty since 1966. Best known for his studies on
the Holocaust, Professor Roth has travelled as a visiting
professor to institutes and universities around the
world, as well as having been honored with the 1988
Professor of the Year Award for the United States and
Canada by the Council for Advancement and Support
of Education.
