I often get questions from people about various problems within Christianity. Since I don’t have the physical capacity to write answers to most of these, I’m compiling a list of resources for folks here.
Paul Copan’s Is God a Moral Monster? is a good introductory text to basic problems in the Old Testament
Denis Lamoureux’s I Love Jesus & I Accept Evolution is a good primer on interpreting Genesis 1 and dealing with science & faith questions. Biologos is also a wonderful resource.
Why doesn’t Paul condemn slavery? Paul Copan has a good response: http://enrichmentjournal.ag.org/201104/201104_108_NT_slavery.cfm
What does the inspiration or authority of the Bible even mean? NT Wright has a wonderful exploration here: http://ntwrightpage.com/Wright_Bible_Authoritative.htm
Was Paul just talking about pederasty? Mark Smith makes a well-researched case in: “Ancient Bisexuality and the Interpretation of Romans 1:26-27.” It’s in JSTOR, so check out your college library for access: http://www.jstor.org/discover/10.2307/1466101?uid=3739696&uid=2&uid=4&uid=3739256&sid=21102961390717
