Jonathan Morrow is one of the top communicators for both students and adults on apologetics and cultural issues.

Resurrections prior to the World’s End?

By William Lane Craig Jun. 9, 2017 9:00 a.m. Apologetics, Philosophy

Fact 4, Point 2 in your opening statement of the debate with Bart Ehrman: you state that Jewish views of the afterlife precluded having a glorified existence prior to the general resurrection. Yet, the accounts of the Transfiguration of Jesus, three disciples saw Moses and Elijah. Elijah, according to the account in Kings, never died, but Moses is recorded as having died at the end of Deuteronomy.

Who Is the "Fool" that Denies God? Not Who You Think

By Sean McDowell Jun. 5, 2017 9:00 a.m. Apologetics

A few summers ago I was doing my “Atheist Encounter” at a large student Christian camp in the Midwest. While the interaction with the audience sometimes gets heated (since I role-play an atheist, after all) the students in this session were far testier and argumentative than normal ...

“What if—?” Questions

By William Lane Craig Jun. 2, 2017 9:00 a.m. Apologetics, Philosophy

Dear Dr. Craig

I have been a fan of your work for about 2 or 3 years now. I used to be an atheist until one of my Christian friends directed me to your website and now I would consider myself to be struggling with atheism/scientism and Christianity.
