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.”
About College of Theology
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.
