Creation and Animal Suffering

In a couple of hours, I plan to engage my Christian theology class here at Southern Seminary in a discussion of cosmic origins and the problem of evil. Today we'll be talking specifically about animal suffering, and how that fits with our understanding of God and ourselves.

For a fuller account of how I think the Bible addresses predation, carnivory, and so forth, see my article "All Things Dark and Terrible" from a couple of years ago in Touchstone My original title was "Where the Wild Things Are," but there's some buttoned-up title-reviser in our offices in Chicago who always tones such things down.
