Is God a Vindictive Bully?

Many people accuse God and Moses of being hard and violent based on their reading of the Old Testament.  They also think Jesus was only gentle and kind.  Apologist Paul Copan joins Chris Brooks to confront this imbalanced teaching that is misleading even Christians!  Join us for a deeply Biblical response to the question: Is God a Vindictive Bully?
