Discussing suffering is easier when you’re standing on the outside. It’s a lot harder when you’re in it. Why is there suffering? How do we deal with death? Is God relevant to how we deal with suffering? Dr. Michael Lill of UCLA and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center present an agnostic perspective on this topic. Dr. Raymond Barfield of Duke University offers the Christian perspective. Their perspectives on suffering and faith draw from their experiences as oncologists treating or providing palliative care to patients with fatal diseases. Join us as two prominent doctors from two different worldviews candidly discuss suffering, life and faith.
