Article: Greg Boyd's Misunderstandings of the 'Warrior God' by Paul Copan

In this featured article, philosopher Paul Copan, author of Is God a Moral Monster: Making Sense of the Old Testament God, offers a critique of Greg Boyd's new two-volume book, The Crucifixion of the Warrior God: Interpreting the Old Testament's Violent Portraits of God in Light of the Cross.  

Copan writes:

 "I shall briefly review Boyd’s project and then examine Boyd’s treatment of various biblical texts, arguing that his bold approach falls short on its own merits."

You can find Dr. Copan's treatment here.

You can also listen to Copan and Boyd discuss the "Warrior God" thesis on Justin's Brierley's Unbelievable here and here.


Courage and Godspeed,
