Interesting Debate

Got this post from

Durham’s N. T. Wright (Durham, England, that is) and UNC’s Bart Ehrman have just concluded a vigorous debate on “the problem of evil” addressed in Ehrman’s new book, God’s Problem. In this book, Ehrman (who was formerly an evangelical, even a youth pastor at a church like the Summit) confesses that the main reason he lost his faith was not supposed contradictions in the Bible but the problem of how there could be a God like the Christian God when there is so much supposedly needless pain in the world.

Who wins the debate? You can decide for yourself.
