The first of two programmes looking at miracles in the Bible and today. Craig S Keener is a New Testament Scholar at Asbury Theological Seminary, Kentucky. His new book “Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts” is a 2 volume work assessing the case for the miracles of Jesus and the many reported cases of miracles around the world.
Geoff Lillis is an atheist listener from Ireland. He contests the reliability of miracle accounts from 2000 years ago. In a good-natured encounter that will be continued next week Geoff and Craig discuss the nature of Miracles, Hume’s philosophical argument against them, whether the Gospel accounts of miracles were invented or embellished and “Why Does God Hate Amputees?”.
