AMBS Webinar on Is God to Blame?

Today is the last day to sign up for a webinar Greg is doing on his book Is God to Blame? Here’s the description from AMBS:

Drawing on his acclaimed book, Is God to Blame? : Moving Beyond Pat Answers to the Problem of Suffering, author Greg Boyd confronts the questions we ask when we face real suffering in our lives. Addressing ordinary Christians, he wrestles with the unsatisfactory answers that theologians and pastors tend to offer and finds that a fully Christian approach must keep Jesus Christ at the center of what we say about human suffering and God’s place in it. What comes through is a hopeful picture of a sovereign God who is relentlessly opposed to evil, who knows our sufferings, and who can be trusted to bring us through them.
