Randal Rauser Critiques William Lane Craig's Defense of Genocide

Dr. Rauser is one of the most unique and intelligent progressive evangelicals around, willing to think outside the box. Not only this, but he's willing to learn from and engage the opposition, as he's argued in his admirable book, You're Not As Crazy As I Think: Dialogue in a World of Loud Voices and Hardened Opinions.In a series of six posts he criticizes the big man among evangelicals, William Lane Craig. After reading them you can see how maddening (!) it was for me to co-write with him God or Godless?: One Atheist. One Christian. Twenty Controversial Questions.He's a real tough nut to crack, seriously. Your assignment today, boys and girls, is to crack this nut on biblical genocide. ;-) There is much I agree with him about, especially that genocide of any kind is barbaric: Part one -- Part two -- Part three -- Part four -- Part five -- Part six.
