Apologist Profile: Dr. Paul Copan

Hello Everyone! In an effort to provide great resources and informed answers to the various objections and challenges that followers of Christ face, I am going to start a series that highlights different apologists and some of their works. I have, and continue to, benefited from their works and believe our readers will as well.

My hope is that these resources will help to educate and challenge both believer and non-believer.

First up in the series is Dr. Paul Copan. Copan is an apologist and philosopher who's educational credentials included:

Ph.D. in philosophy, M.A. (cum laude), Diploma in Philosophy of Religion, B.A. (cum laude), Diploma in Biblical Studies
Currently Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics at Palm Beach Atlantic University
[1]

He is the author or co-author of many books and articles that tackle topics such as morality, God's existence, and relativism.

Some of his books include
:


Articles:
