Moltmann on Moltmann

Moltmann speaks about suffering, prayer, and faith in Nazi Germany and in the post-modern world.

He points out that the people who usually ask the infamous question: “How can God be both good and powerful when he allows such suffering?” are not those who suffer themselves but the onlookers of someone else’s suffering. When one suffers they are not asking God “why?” as much as they ask “where are you?”
