Is the God of the Old Testament nothing but a bully, a murderer, and an oppressor? Many today – even within the church – seem to think so. How are Christians to respond to such accusations? And how are we to reconcile the seemingly disconnected natures of God portrayed in the two testaments?
In this timely and readable book, apologist Paul Copan takes on some of the most vexing accusations of our time, including:
God is arrogant and jealous ● God punishes people too harshly ● God is guilty of ethnic cleansing ● God oppresses women ● God endorses slavery ● Christianity causes violence
Copan not only answers the critics, he also shows how to read both the Old and New Testaments faithfully, seeing an unchanging, righteous, and loving God in both.
"Copan takes on current New Atheist biblical critics and powerfully addresses virtually every criticism they have raised. I know of no other book like this one, and it should be required reading in college and seminary courses." – J. P. Moreland
Paul Copan on Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics -professori Floridassa (Palm Beach Atlantic University). Hän on kirjoittanut paitsi useita kirjoja, myös lukuisia artikkeleita alansa akateemisiin julkaisuihin.
