Paul Copan — Want to Read the Bible Well? Read it in Context (Rebroadcast)

Summit Ministries

Theologian, analytic philosopher, apologist and author Paul Copan answers the questions about God’s character that Christians often get from nonbelievers looking to paint God as violent, misogynistic and racist. The author of Is God a Vindictive Bully? explains in this wide-ranging conversation with Dr. Jeff Myers that to get the full insight into God’s goodness requires us to read Scripture in the context of both its cultural time and its literary genres. “God is not wrathful in spite of love,” he notes. “He’s wrathful because of love.”
