ClassicalTheism.com Podcast on Thomism and the Problem of Animal Suffering

I recently sat down with John DeRosa from the Classical Theism Podcast to discuss my book Thomism and the Problem of Animal Suffering. In the podcast, we discuss topics like how I first got interested in animal suffering, the contents and main arguments in my book, and several others. We originally planned for the podcast to last about 50 minutes, but we had so much fun that we ended up talking for over an hour and a half! So, this is definitely the most in-depth interview I have given on the problem of animal suffering.

Here is a link to the podcast: A Response to Animal Suffering w/ Dr. Kyle Keltz.

I you haven’t already checked out the Classical Theism Podcast, I highly recommend it. John interviews prominent apologists, Thomists, and other Christian philosophers (to name a few: Edward Feser, Matthew Levering, Gaven Kerr, Fr. Michael Dodds, Fr. Thomas Joseph White, Michael Licona). John is also an apologist in his own right, as he released an apologetics book this year through Catholic Answers Press titled One Less God Than You: How to Answer the Slogans, Clichés, and Fallacies That Atheists Use to Challenge Your Faith.

SES Podcast on Animal Suffering and Death

I recently sat down with Eric Gustafson from Southern Evangelical Seminary to discuss the topic of my dissertation: the problem of animal suffering. Eric has been my friend for years now, and I had a great time going back and forth with him discussing the question of why God allows animal death and suffering. In the podcast, we talk about the steps my argument takes in my book Thomism and the Problem of Animal Suffering. So, we discuss topics like the nature of pain, the nature of non-human animal minds, and the question of why God made a world that contains animal death. We also talk about something that Eric is highly interested in, which is the biblical debate over whether God allowed animal death before the Fall of Adam and Eve.
