Contributing a Chapter to a New John Loftus Volume on Miracles

August has been a rough month, so I’m sorry that I haven’t been more active on the blog. But, I do have an announcement to make about a chapter that I will be contributing to a new volume, edited by John Loftus, on the subject of apologetics and miracles.

My chapter will be a critical review of Christian scholar Craig Keener’s Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts. I started reviewing Keener’s volumes back in December of 2015, but for various reasons I’ve been delayed in continuing my series of essays on the subject. Loftus’ new volume, therefore, provides a great opportunity for me to wrap up my critique.

I’m going to be working with Ed Babinski on the review, and right now it’s looking like we will each write one chapter in a two-part section. Babinski helped me during my earlier review, by critiquing Keener’s analysis of faith healer Johann Blumhardt, so I’m happy to be working with him again. Evan Fales will also be writing a chapter for the volume, and while I believe it won’t be focused on Keener, Fales and I have corresponded a lot over the years about the topic of probability and miracles.

This should be a nice opportunity, so I’m very grateful that Loftus invited me to contribute a chapter!
