Buckshot Audio (Of the Apologetic Sort)

The audio bin is overflowing with stuff!  So, you guessed it, it’s time to pull out the shotgun and just start firing.  Here we go: 

Peter Williams on the Reliability of the Gospels 

There are those who can discuss the historical reliability of the Gospels and there are those who can discuss the reliability of the Gospels.  Peter Williams falls into the latter camp.  He knows what he’s talking about.  So if you’re into this kind of stuff at all, give this interview a go.  More than once I found myself nodding my head, thinking, “Hmmm.  Very tasty point!  Very tasty point indeed.”

Unbelievable: Is God a Moral Monster?  Paul Copan and Norman Bacrac (April 9th 2011)

In a recent debate, William Lane Craig said that Paul Copan’s new book on the morality of the OT was excellent.  It may be.  I haven’t read it.  But if Paul Copan’s exchange with atheist Norman Bacrac is any indication of the book’s promise, I must say that I’m less than optimistic.  Actually, the exchange was pretty bad.  Dr. Copan spent most of his time trying to convince us that when Joshua, for example, destroyed all the people in a particular city, not everyone was destroyed.  Even if we grant his exegesis at certain points, which deserves consideration, one wants to ask Dr. Copan, “Well, uh, did at least one woman and one child die by the sword?  And if so, what say you?” 

I gotta say, at the end of the day, it felt like he was trying to dodge what is quite plain in the Bible.  God justly destroys people.  But again, maybe the book is better.

Christianity and the Tooth Fairy: A UCLA Law Professor Questions an Oxford Mathematician on the Claims of Jesus

On the brighter side of things, John Lennix really shines in this talk.  He handles a variety of questions with class and Oxford verve.  As a presuppositionalist, I might have approached a number of the questions a bit differently, but I’m quibbling.  Dr. Lennix is a sharp and winsome man, and Christians should enjoy and be thankful for this recent interview.
