Dr. Connolly says that we must approach the problem of pain by asking What should we think about pain, and What should we do about it. The problem of pain, he argues is often answered with a false dichotomy—either God is wholly good, but not omnipotent, or that God is omnipotent but not wholly good. In the course of his talk, Dr. Connolly seeks to answer these two framing questions by exploring a third answer to the problem of pain that maintains both God’s omnipotence and God’s completely good nature.
