Written by on 25/02/2023

Chaplaincy: Newman House, London

Ep 2 – Broadcasts on February 25 (Saturday) at 8:00pm, February 27 (Monday) at 5pm, and March 2 (Thursday) at 12:30am

Our panel of speakers included Prof Stephen Bullivant and two students from the chaplaincy: Caterina and Sean. Caterina is completing a PhD in Epidemiology and Sean is training to become a doctor.

On this episode we tackled questions around suffering and faith. What should our response as Catholics be in the face of suffering? Why does a good God permit evil? Prof Stephen Bullivant, Caterina and Sean speak to these questions from their experience and enrich the conversation with perspectives from their own fields.

Prof Stephen Bullivant is Professor of Theology and the Sociology of Religion at St Mary’s University, Twickenham, and Professorial Research Fellow in Theology and Sociology at the University of Notre Dame, Sydney. He holds doctorates in theology (Oxford, 2009) and sociology (Warwick, 2019).

His most recent books include Catholicism in the Time of Coronavirus (Word on Fire, 2020) The Cambridge History of Atheism (CUP, 2021; with M. Ruse), and Catholicisim in Contemporary Britain: Faith, Society, Politics (OUP, 2022; with B. Clements). Due out early next year are:Nonverts: The Making of Ex-Christian America, and Vatican II: A Very Short Introduction (with S. Blanchard), both with Oxford University Press.
