A Theology of Suicide

I was recently privileged to present a paper at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and chose to address the problem of Christian ethical requirements in the face of existential absurdity. With the philosophies of Albert Camus and Gabriel Marcel in mind, I attempt to construct a theology that honors God, while acknowledging the failing nature of human relationships, the facts of suffering, and the bits of Christ that are to be found within them.

First time presenting, so excuse me! I accidentally ran out of time and was able to answer only two questions during the Q&A period. Enjoy!
