Abstract

The problem of theodicy: An answer from a pastoral perspective. A fundamental aspect of the problem of theodicy is the experience of God's action as at times unfair, a perception at home espedally in  a situation of human suffering. God's redemptive action in and through his Son Jesus Christ, however, opens a new perspective on this problem. In faith, God is not a distant God any more. He entered into the problematic situation of human suffering, bringing redemption to man.
