Welcome to episode 52 of the podcast featuring Author and Speaker Dr. Thomas Jay Oord. Dr. Thomas Jay Oord is a theologian, philospher, and scholar of multi-disciplinary studies. He is an award-winning author or editor of twenty-five books and an award-winning professor. Oord directs the Northwind Theological Seminary doctoral program in Open and Relational Theology. He also directs the Center for Open and Relational Theology. Oord is known for his contributions to research on love, open and relational theology, issues in science and religion, and freedom for transformation. He has been president of several scholarly societies and lectures at institutions, events, and churches around the globe. In this conversation, Dr. Oord and I speak at length about questions and pushback that he has received since the release of his groundbreaking book, God Can't. We discuss the problem of evil, what God can and can't do, and whether he ever worries about being wrong. Dr. Oord blogs frequently at his website.
