Ep. 3: Endo’s Silence, David Booz and Andrea Francois
David Booz, Brookewood Theology Chair, and Andrea Francois, Lower School + 6 Director, discuss with Cherie Walsh their readings of Shusaku Endo's novel Silence and Martin Scorsese's 2017 film adaptation of the novel. Issues include the problem of innocent suffering--and, relatedly, God's alleviation of suffering vs. His accompaniment--and the role of Judas in the story of Christ. The novel and the film also highlight the problem of hubris as Rodrigues sets himself up in place of Christ.
