When Did Jesus Bear the Penalty for Sin?

By William Lane Craig Jan. 20, 2017 9:00 a.m. Philosophy

Dear Dr. Craig,

I have a question regarding the chronology of the atonement.

I know that, in one sense, the atonement encompasses all of Jesus' life in that it involves the imputation of his righteousness to us and not only our sin to him, and therefore we can say that everything from his birth, the silent years of his life, his baptism, temptation, etc. are all a part of the atonement.

On the other hand, the bible seems to focus specifically on the death of Jesus on the cross ...

The Story of Reality: Apologist Greg Koukl Discusses His New Book

By Sean McDowell Jan. 19, 2017 10:15 a.m. Apologetics, Philosophy

Although I first heard of Greg Koukl as an undergrad at Biola University in the mid 90s, we became good friends in the early 2000s as students in the M.A. Philosophy program at Talbot. Greg is one of the leading apologists of our day and has had a huge impact on my personal and professional life.

He gave me the honor of endorsing his recent book The Story of Reality, and I can honestly say that it’s fantastic. In the words of Tim Challies:

“Koukl promises to tell the story of reality. He does, and he does it beautifully. You’ll benefit by reading his telling of how the world began, how it will end, and all the important stuff that happens in between" ...

Working the Story: Theology of Work Meets Eschatology

By Mark Saucy Jan. 18, 2017 9:00 a.m. Church Life, Culture, New Testament, Old Testament, Theology

... The topic is work. Something important for all of us, and it’s one that has interested me in particular teaching already five years now a theology of work course for Biola’s Crowell School of Business MBA program. Work is also a topic that naturally engages the desire for kingdom impact in the culture, because, as Karl Barth says, “human culture is produced in work. So the Faith and Work movement is right on target for engaging a ready audience in a worthy endeavor. This of course isn’t the only good of theology of work ...

In What Sense Is It Impossible for the Universe to Come from Nothing?

By William Lane Craig Jan. 13, 2017 9:00 a.m. Philosophy

I am a medical student from Norway, and first I want to say that I am very grateful for your work as it has meant a great deal to both my interest in philosophy and my faith.

Last week there was a small debate in Oslo about the Kalaam cosmological argument in which an atheist philosopher claimed that it may be possible that something began to exist out of nothing because that statement did not involve a contradiction and hence was logically possible. In watching your debates and reading some of your work I understand you to agree that it is logically possible, but that since it goes against both our intuition and experience it is in some other way impossible or at least an irrational view to hold ...

Do We Really Live In A "Post-Truth" World?

By Sean McDowell Jan. 11, 2017 12:00 p.m. Culture

It’s official. The 2016 word of the year is “post-truth.” Last year it was an emoji. In 2014 the word was “vape.” And in 2013 it was “selfie.” With the truth twisting, emotional appeals, and personal attacks that characterized this past election season, Oxford Dictionaries selected “post-truth” as the word for 2016. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.”
