Calvinism as an Apologetic

January 31st, 2016

In this episode we wrap up our discussion of the Doctrines of Grace by showing how Calvinism is relevant in the discipline of apologetics and why Calvinism is a more helpful response to the problem of evil and the problem of divine hiddenness than that of typical responses to those arguments.

Atheistically Speaking - A Mulligan

October 11th, 2015

In this episode, I circle back to some of the things that I discussed with Thomas Smith on his podcast Atheistically Speaking. I wasn't entirely happy with some of my responses so I wanted to flesh them out a little more here. I discuss everything from the literary master of the Bible to the Bible's polemical use of the Enuma Elish.

I also discuss my views on the ever controversial Genesis 1 creation account - this will be a delight to YEC and OEC alike!

As I mentioned, here are some of the sources you can use to look into what I discussed. In addition to these, I recommend looking up a lecture by John Walton called Reading Genesis Through Ancient Eyes.

Enjoy!
