Hard to Believe #076 – Dr. Joshua Bowen
For the first episode of 2023, John spoke to Dr. Joshua Bowen. He’s an expert in the ancient near east and a regular on YouTube and podcasts, as well as the author of The Atheist Handbook to the Old Testament, which guides curious people with no personal faith investment through what the Old Testament actually says and how to understand it in context and as an historical artifact.
Here Dr. Josh talk about his former life as a fundamentalist, how research and critical thinking moved took him out of that belief system, and what often stands in the way of a real understanding of the Bible and who wrote it.
You can learn more about the work he does alongside his wife, Megan Lewis and how to support them and their work here:
Dr. Josh’s book, The Atheist Handbook to the Old Testament, is available here in physical and digital form.
