A Loving God OR Cosmic Tyrant?: Understanding the God of the Old Testament and Trusting His Word

 

It is no secret that God and the Bible are under intense attack today from a number of directions by the New Atheists and others. These lectures will expose erroneous ideas and provide you with factual history and truth. They will present a fully biblical understanding of the character of God and strengthen your confidence in the Bible and enable you to help others with their questions.

 

Dr. Peter Williams s the Warden of Tyndale House and a Honorary Senior Lecturer in Biblical Studies at the University of Aberdeen and a lecturer at University of Cambridge. He earned his M.A., M.Phil. and Ph.D. at Cambridge University studying ancient languages related to the Bible. Dr. Williams originally planned to become a Bible translator, but after seeing how many students of the Bible did not recognize its authority, Williams decided to change his professional direction and become an evangelical scholar in order to advance confessional scholarship.

Date: This event took place September 20-21, 2013 at Forth Presbyterian Church in Bethesda, MD.
