God on Trial Movie Review

This movie was based on the Holocaust and the people who were about to be put to death in the gas chambers. These people/Jews, were not illiterate but very well educated and some of them were even professors. They decided to put God on trial for breaching his contract and basically failing to fulfill his covenant. They talked about the four different monotheistic theodicies,  1. protest 2. suffering as a punishment of sin 3.suffering as a test and 4. the mystery of God’s sovereignty. God is later found Guilty by the Jews. It was a very interesting movie especially the part that showed the Jews praying once some of them were chosen to be gassed. This part stayed with me.
