The Fault in Our Stars: A Theological Assessment

Although I mentioned this in the previous post, I thought that I would single it out here as well.  Many people by now have both heard of and read the popular young adult fiction The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.  Many more have also watched the movie.  John Green certainly did not write his book to promote a Christian or even a religious response to suffering and death, although he allows his characters to struggle with these in both religious and secular ways.  In an interview back in July with Issues, Etc. host Todd Wilken, I attempted to offer some theological assessment of Green's book.  Go here to find the archived interview, "The Will of God and 'The Fault in Our Stars'".
