Disc 2 includes three Lessons. Lesson 4 - Providence And The Problem of Evil. (28:26 minutes) Perhaps the most difficult question in theology is this: Why does God allow evil? If God is all-good and all-powerful, then why are our lives marked with pain and suffering? These are not abstract questions. They go right to the heart of our experience. We have each wrestled with misery, wondering when God would intervene. As with Job, God does not give us answers. He instead offers a person: the crucified Jesus, through whom God enters our suffering and makes it his own. Lesson 5 - Exploring The Trinity. (21:13 minutes) The most important event in human history took place when God, infinite and incomprehensible, became a finite and familiar man, Jesus Christ. While some people reduce Jesus to a wise teacher, the testimony of scripture and the early Church makes it clear that Jesus of Nazareth was, and is, God incarnate. He’s the Second Person of the Trinity. And by his sacrificial death and glorious resurrection, we too can enter into Trinitarian life. Lesson 6 - The God Who Is Love. (26:23 minutes) The book of Genesis reveals that we are made in the image and likeness of God. What does this mean? St. Augustine it affirmed that our own traits - our minds, our self-knowledge, our self-love can tell us something about God as Trinity. What is Christianity finally about? What is the deepest meaning of being and all reality? The Christian answer is that God is love, a play of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In this new Mystery of God six-part film series and study program, Fr. Robert Barron reaches into our rich intellectual tradition to teach us how we can turn the tide of secularism and draw people back to God. Using the insights of St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, Pope Benedict, he uncovers a clear yet sophisticated understanding of what we mean by “God”. This program by Fr. Robert Barron includes six lessons on one set of 2 DVDs; 1 Leader’s Guide; 1 Study Program Workbook; and 10 “The Mystery of God Pocket Guide to Answering Atheists”.
