This week we are so excited to introduce Barton Priebe to you. Barton worked for four years at Trinity Western University, 13 years as Lead Pastor at Dunbar Heights Baptist Church in Vancouver, and in 2015 he became the Lead Pastor of Central Baptist Church in Victoria. You will enjoy his preaching as he knows how to ask the right questions, engage attention, and thoughtfully guide you to biblical answers that impact all areas of faith and life. He received his Doctor of Ministry from Northwest Baptist Seminary. He enjoys cycling, skiing, sushi, reading, date nights with his wife, and having fun with his four children. He is the author of The Problem with Christianity: 6 Unsettling Questions You Have Asked, and co-author of Everyday Apologetics: Answering Common Objections to the Christian Faith.
In this episode, Barton and Chris discuss the question, why is God so violent in the Old Testament? He brings pastoral sensitivity, and grounds it in biblical answers.
Parental Warning: Some of the topics are a little heavy as they talk about the Canaanite event in Joshua. Some details may be disturbing or jarring.
