Old Testament Morality
N.B. Clicking on further links within the Popup will stop the audio.
Richard Dawkins has described the God of the Old Testament as (among other things) a "capriciously malevolent bully". The world's best known atheist joins Justin Brierley to discuss the morality of the Old Testament in light of the Bible TV series airing in the UK on Channel 5.
Rabbi Josh Levy and Christian lecturer Chris Sinkinson discuss with Dawkins whether the events of the Old Testament are historical and how to interpret the so-called 'terror' passages. What about the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, or of Abraham nearly sacrificing Isaac?
