Contending for the Faith has never been so exciting or more challenging. Drawing on years of experience as a biblical scholar, our guest will address common objections to the Christian faith—the exclusivity of Christianity, Christian intolerance, homosexuality, hell, the problem of evil, science, miracles, and the reliability of the Bible. If you’re dealing with doubt or wrestling with objections to Christianity, this conversation will equip you to engage secular challenges with intellectual honesty, compassion, and confidence—and ultimately grow more confident in Christ with your faith intact.
Dr. Michael J. Kruger serves as the President and Samuel C. Patterson Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the Charlotte campus of Reformed Theological Seminary. He earned his Ph.D. under one of the world’s leading text-critical scholars, Larry W. Hurtado, at the University of Edinburgh, where he researched a parchment fragment of an apocryphal gospel, P.Oxy. 840. He graduated summa cum laude with a M.Div. from Westminster Seminary California, and received his B.S. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is one of the leading scholars today in the study of the origins of the New Testament, particularly the development of the New Testament canon.
