    Awesome interview. Love J.P.'s comment to us next-gen apologists: "You don't have to be Bill Craig!" Thank God generalists make a difference, too. We're all in this together, right? Thanks for this, Brian!

    Thank you, Brian, for posting this interview with J.P. Moreland. He has really helped me a lot through the few books I've read. Being an apologetics philosopher leaves one confused for many years because we are convinced by conventional teaching that we don't exist. Even in this short interview, J.P. has resolved an issue in my soul and confirmed an ideology I have, but have wrestled with how to explain it to others; namely, "we aren't to live Jesus' life, but we are to live OUR life as Jesus would." I agree, "he's deep"; and don't we love that. : ) Thanks again and keep up the good work.
