Grand Canyon University welcomes Dr. Paul Copan to campus for his presentation, “Jesus-Shaped Cultures,” a discussion on Christianity’s impact in history.
The Christian faith changed Western civilization, a transformation acknowledged by even leading atheist intellectuals. Jesus is not only unique in his identity claims in comparison to other world religious leaders, but his faithful disciples make a significant impact wherever they go. The Christian faith doesn’t simply make good intellectual sense; it impacts life and society.
Paul Copan (Ph.D. Philosophy, Marquette University) is Professor and Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics at Palm Beach Atlantic University in Florida and was president of the Evangelical Philosophical Society. He is an author and editor of 30 books including “The Rationality of Theism,” “The Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Religion,” “Philosophy of Religion: Classic and Contemporary Issues,” “The Gospel in the Marketplace of Ideas,” “An Introduction to Biblical Ethics,” “Is God a Moral Monster?” and “True for You, But Not for Me.”
