God and Canaan: Another Perspective

Author Paul Copan has published a some articles on God and the Canaanites, which gives some interesting perspectives. You can find them at these links:

How Could God Command Killing the Canaanites?
Divinely Mandated Genocide or Corporate Capital Punishment?
The New Atheists and Old Testament Ethics

I’m not sure I agree with everything he says, but he does give some valuable comments.

Also valuable is Copan’s more detailed book on the subject, Is God A Moral Monster? Making Sense of the Old Testament God (Baker, 2011).

    Very nice blog. I appreciate the links here to the EPS articles. Formulating or explaining a consistent world view is indeed a major challenge. Your Thomist page is very informative. I look forward to reading more.
