Is God a Moral Monster?: Making Sense of the Old Testament God

Is God a Moral Monster?: Making Sense of the Old Testament God

Publisher: Baker Book House Publishing Group
Author: Paul Copan
$14.97
A recent string of popular-level books written by the New Atheists has leveled the accusation that the God of the Old Testament is nothing but a bully, a murderer, and a cosmic child abuser. This viewpoint is even making inroads into the church. How are Christians to respond to such accusations? And how are we to reconcile the seemingly disconnected natures of God portrayed in the two testaments?

 

In this timely and readable book, apologist Paul Copan takes on some of the most vexing accusations of our time, including:

 

God is arrogant and jealous 
God punishes people too harshly 
God is guilty of ethnic cleansing 
God oppresses women 
God endorses slavery 
Christianity causes violence 
and more

 

Copan not only answers God's critics, he also shows how to read both the Old and New Testaments faithfully, seeing an unchanging, righteous, and loving God in both.
