Atheists have marginalized the Hebrew Scriptures by attacking special creationism, Intelligent Design, and so-called sanctioned violence, ethnocentrism, sexism, etc. Recently, popular teaching from some within our own evangelical camp have raised doubts concerning the veracity, relevance, credibility, and impact of the Old Testament on the life of the church today. Join us to hear two Old Testament scholars discuss how our values have been shaped by the inspired Word of God.
