Dr. Preston Hill Featured on Pilgrim Radio

Dr. Preston Hill was recently interviewed on Pilgrim Radio in response to his January article published by Christianity Today: “Have Christians Forgotten How to Fight with God?” The interview focuses on the biblical themes of theodicy and lament.

“Writing this piece for Christianity Today was simply an immense joy,” Dr. Hill comments. “Since my research has focused on the importance of Christ’s trauma for the suffering of the world today, it was a special privilege to articulate in this piece Richmont’s distinctive approach to theodicy, trauma, and Christian integration and how this can empower Christians today to be more honest in their relationship with God about the pain of the world.”

With 9 FM stations across 4 states, Pilgrim Radio reaches a broad array of listeners. You can experience the interview here.
