About this course

Thinking well about Scripture also means being able to answer the hard questions posed in the culture and church today. In this course, Dr. Heiser focuses on Old Testament controversies that in today’s conversation provoke criticism of the Bible as a reliable source of spiritual, theological, and historical truth. The goal is to expose how scholarly discussions, as well as amateur discussions (those in the media or online environments), misrepresent these biblical controversial topics.
