Gustavo Gutierrez and the Problem of Human Suffering

Dates/Times: October 7 (1-6pm) and October 8 (9am-5pm)
Location: Online
Instructor: Kelly Brown Douglas
Registration Deadline – Friday, September 24

How do you speak of the justice of God amidst unjust human suffering and oppression? This core dilemma in the book of Job is also the central theme of liberation theology. Gustavo Gutierrez, the pioneer of Latin American liberation theology, writes that “the innocence that Job vigorously claims for himself helps [us] to understand the innocence of an oppressed and believing people amid the situation of suffering and death that has been forced upon it.” Through careful examination of Gutierrez’s “On Job: God-Talk the Suffering of the Innocent”, this course examines how Latin American liberation theology responds to the predicament of speaking of a just God in the face of human suffering with special attention to the practice of ministry in an unjust world.
