Clay Jones Interview: The Crusades – part 3

Apologetics 315 is happy to welcome Clay Jones for a series of three interviews. Clay is assistant professor at the Master of Arts in Christian Apologetics program at Biola University – and he teaches courses in Theodicy & the Issue of Evil, apologetics research and writing, and defending the resurrection. He has been interviewed in the past on Apologetics 315 on the problem of evil.

Today’s interview is the third and final in a series of three short podcasts (see part one here, two here) dealing the atrocities committed in the crusades, Luther’s insights on the crusades, the idea of a Christian nation, and the complex lessons of the crusades.
