Fr. Moloney invites the reader to wrestle with the supposed contradiction of God saying that he is merciful, yet killing and punishing his creation. Moloney ultimately resolves this apparent contradiction by highlighting God’s identity as the loving Father, explaining how, similar to good earthly fathers, sometimes the most loving route to take in truly loving your children and bringing them to their ultimate good is through the course of tough love. God is always good and loving, and his justice and mercy go hand-in-hand.
Fr. Daniel Moloney, PhD, a priest for the Archdiocese of Boston, is the Catholic chaplain at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Before his ordination in 2010, he earned a doctorate in Philosophy from Notre Dame, worked at think tanks in Princeton, Washington, D.C., and New York, and served as the associate editor of First Things.
