God, Woody Allen, and Job

Todd H. Speidell

Todd Speidell suggests in this reflection essay that Woody Allen purposefully, albeit humorously and implicitly, reveals his doubts about God's existence throughout his essays and films. But even in a godless universe, Allen suggests, one can face the absurdity of life through human love and laughter. Job and Jesus, by contrast, embrace the ambiguity of faith living with doubt and protest. Mr. Speidell is Head of Religious Studies at the Webb School of Knoxville.
