How do you look at the Bible as an ancient historian?

A conversation with Dr. Peter VanDerPuy

Episode Description:

In the last portion of our interview with Dr. VanDerPuy we ask him about how he looks at the Bible as an ancient historian, and what he perceives to be the ways that some Christians go off course in defending their faith.

Dr. VanDerPuy is an ancient historian at Ohio State, teaching courses in the world of antiquity and its literature. Originally from the state of Washington, Dr. VanDerPuy moved to Great Britain where he received a masters degree from the world renowned Oxford. He received his PhD from Ohio State and is an expert on the Roman Republic. But Dr. VanDerPuy is not a stereotypical history professor, no offense to history professors. He is simultaneously highly intelligent yet social, laid back, humble. He’s the type of guy you want to get stuck across the table from at a dinner party because you know the conversation will be meaningful and interesting.
