Excellent insight into Camus, a figure whose relevance looms larger as suffering increases throughout western culture.
The party's over and we as believers MUST be equipped to wrestle with the accusations against God, the demands for quick-fix solutions to evil....

Albert Camus (1913-1960) was one of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century. He has been considered the “conscience of Europe” during the years surrounding the Second World War. Today, he is having a comeback. While not necessarily a Christian, his writings strongly reflect Christian concerns. "The Fall" is a confession of sin implicating the human race. "The Myth of Sisyphus" is a philosophical study answering the question of suicide. "The Plague" is a meditation on the problem of evil. Though labeled an “existentialist,” he is more of a post-Christian humanist. With special attention paid to "The Fall" and "The Plague," the speaker explores both Camus’ wise insights and his sub-biblical conclusions.
