Have you ever thought that the God of the Old Testament seemed kind of…mean? Well, you wouldn’t be alone. Our guest this evening on The Busted Halo Show explores these feelings and concepts in his new book God Behaving Badly: Is the God of the Old Testament Angry, Sexist, and Racist? David Lamb is associate professor of Old Testament at the Biblical Theological Seminary in Hatfield, Pennsylvania. He previously worked in campus ministry with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and has taught extensively in various cross-cultural contexts. In his new book God Behaving Badly, Mr. Lamb sets out to fix God’s bad reputation by engaging with Scripture and history to provide reassuring answers to some of our potentially challenging questions.
