This is posted as a reference for those who may have questions about complaints against Christianity, or are looking for some explanations for some issues with the Old Testament.
From the start, I want to thank Paul Copan for his encouragement...he gave me tips on articles to read and other books to use as resources. His help over the last three years has been invaluable to me.
This is a combination of a talk given at First Presbyterian Boulder, in 2011on Paul Copan's book "Is God a Moral Monster" and added material from my Philosophy 3000 Ancient from CU Boulder. I hope you enjoy it.
