Challenging the New Atheist view of Old Testament Ethics
In this third session of the Bethinking National Apologetics Day Conference, Peter J. Williams of Tyndale House, Cambridge, challenges the New Atheists' interpretations and condemnation of the Old Testament. This includes the destruction of the Canaanites, brought to public attention only a few days prior to this conference by Richard Dawkins, who used it as his latest excuse for refusing to debate William Lane Craig.
The Bethinking National Apologetics Day Conference, 'Countering the New Atheism', took place during the UK Reasonable Faith Tour in October 2011. Christian academics William Lane Craig, John Lennox, Peter J. Williams and Gary Habermas lead 600 people in training for how to defend and proclaim the credibility of Christianity against the growing tide of secularism and New Atheist popular thought in western society.
