Copan Q & A

The Evangelical Philosophical Society blog has an interview with Paul Copan on the new atheists, particularly their attacks on the "God of the Old Testament." Paul also has some great advice for the church.

In general, I would say that Christians need to be well-informed about their faith and its robust intellectual strength as well as common challenges to their faith. This will require turning off the TV and doing research and deeper thinking. We must also help equip the next generation of Christians to be more thoughtful about their faith rather than presuming upon the fading Judeo-Christian heritage that many Christians in our culture seem to cling to. Although the church throughout the world is growing dramatically, the church in North America is facing great challenges from within and without.
