Join Devin & Melissa Pellew each week as they discuss issues related to Christian apologetics, theology and biblical worldview issues. Today, we will be joined by Dr. Phil Fernades of the Institute of Biblical Defense and Pastor of Trinity Bible Fellowship Bremerton, WA as we discuss his book, The Atheist Delusion. In his book, Dr. Fernandes refutes the arguments of the new, militant atheists. He provides reasons for believing in God and evidence for Christianity, while also tearing down the attacks on Christianity produced by the new atheists.
Dr. Fernandes earned the following degrees: a Ph.D. in philosophy of religion from Greenwich University, a Master of Arts in Religion from Liberty University and a Bachelor of Theology from Columbia Evangelical Seminary. He has publicly debated some of America’s leading atheists. He has lectured and debated in defense of the Christian worldview at some of America’s leading universities: Princeton, University of Washington, Oregon State University, and the University of North Carolina. Dr.Fernandes is a member of four professional societies: the Evangelical Theological Society, the Evangelical Philosophical Society, the International Society of Christian Apologetics, the International Society of Christian Apologetics, and the Society of Christian Philosophers.
Dr. Fernandes is the author of several books: The God Who Sits Enthroned: Evidence for God’s Existence; No Other Gods: A Defense of Biblical Christianity; God, Government, and the Road to Tyranny; Contend Earnestly for the Faith; and Theism vs. Atheism: The Internet Debate (co-authored with Dr. Michael Martin) and Hijacking the Historical Jesus: Answering Recent Attacks on the Jesus of the Bible.
