In today’s episode, Dr. Paul Copan joins us to help make sense of some troubling passages in the Old Testament. Paul is a theologian and an analytic philosopher who has written/edited over 40 books including “Is God a Moral Monster” and “Is God a Vindictive Bully.” He is a professor at Palm Beach Atlantic University and travels extensively, speaking and teaching around the world.
Paul brings his expertise and thoughtful responses to some very difficult questions raised in response to passages in the Old Testament.
– Does the OT condone slavery?
– How could a truly holy and loving God command the slaughter of an entire people?
– Is the God of the Old Testament a misogynistic, vindictive bully?
– What are we to make of imprecatory Psalms?
