In this episode, we will be dealing with the topic of food as we specifically look at what the Bible has to say about using and eating animals from several different perspectives. Joining us for the discussion is Dr. Paul Copan, Christian theologian, analytic philosopher, apologist, and author. He is currently a professor at the Palm Beach Atlantic University and holds the endowed Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics.
We'll discuss Dr. Copan's newest book, What Would Jesus Really Eat: The Case For Meat Eating, edited with Dr. Wes Jamison. In this work, a group of scholars have applied their expertise in biblical studies, theology, philosophy, resource management, communication, and generational pig farming to write an accessible response for Christians who rightly believe that meat-eating is a gift from God. This book responds to leading challenges from animal activism outside the church- offering important biblical and practical correctives to a growing but misguided compassion- and even to bullying within the church.
