December 12, 2018 4 - 5:30 at UUCOB:   Book of Job:  Bibical Existentialism? DAN KENNEDY, Ed.D.   

The Book of Job, a part of Old Testament Biblical wisdom literature, addresses the  age old philosophical and theological Problem of Evil.  Why do bad things happen to good people and good things to bad people?  Might it be because we live in an indifferent and impersonal universe?  This program, using a Biblical critical analysis approach, will examine the origin and story of Job, and argue for an interpretation  related to Existentialist philosophy.
