Theology by John Caputo

John D. Caputo is one of the leading philosophers whose work is mainly focused on hermeneutics, phenomenology, deconstruction and theology.

What does Barth mean by the ‘humanity of God’

When Barth discusses the humanity of God he is referring to the relationship that he believed God shared with man.

The problem of evil has troubled theologians, especially Christian theologians, for centuries and many have put forward reasoned arguments, known as theodicies, that reconcile a all-powerful and all-good God with the amount of evil in the world. The two most famous theodicies are proposed by Augustine and Irenaeus. Some people believe that theodicies provide a […]

How the theodicy of Irenaeus differs from that of Augustine

  The problem of evil and suffering can be the major obstacle between non believers and faith. For these people it is impossible to contemplate a God who chooses to inflict the pain and misery onto the world that is easily apparent. Philosophers have therefore looked for explanations for why an omnipotent, omniscient and benevolent […]
