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

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


Naturalism, Morality, and God

Is Yahweh a Moral Monster? The New Atheists and Old Testament Ethics

The Moral Argument for God's Existence

Who Are You to Judge Others?-
In Defense of Making Moral Judgements

Existence of God

God- The Best Explanation taken from Loving Wisdom: Christian Philosophy of Religion

God Can't Possibly Exist Given the Evil and Pain I See in the World!- A Brief Response to the Problem of Evil

Responds to Skepticism/Relativism

How Do You Know You're Not Wrong?- Responding to Skepticism

That's True for You, But Not for Me- A Brief Response to Relativism

You Christians Are So Narrow-minded!- A Brief Response to the Charge of Intolerance.

I hope that these resources prove helpful.

Courage and Godspeed,
