In a pluralistic culture, the exclusive claims of Jesus Christ are uncomfortable for many. As C.S. Lewis once said of this one who claims to be God in human flesh, “You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God.”
On today’s program, you’ll discover good reasons for believing that Jesus is indeed Lord and God. Dr. Bryan Chapell, who has taught many pastors as a seminary professor, joins Dr. Wright to discuss the Lordship of Jesus Christ. And we will debunk one of the recent attacks against Christ coming from the halls of academia.
